@prabhakar: The device may not suit for every physically challenged person. And those who can't put it on by themselves can still get help from their care takers.

Prabhakar,

I have seen many Senior Citizens who have limited Mobility.

This device can definitely help them go about their day to day jobs better.

This a good contraption that MIT has developed.  Among many, it has much usability for the one handed people or  people with partial paralysis.

The problem seems to be , for physically challenged people how to put it on on your wrist, because that will require use of other hand.
