We can get a GRASP on RA!

What it does

Early indicator haptic tool for RA progression

How we built it

Collecting output from an Electromyography Sensor connected to a raspberry pi, uploading results to AWS and our GRASP webpage.

Challenges we ran into

-Soldering! -Circuitry! -AWS!

Accomplishments that we're proud of

-Soldering! -Circuitry! -Graphic Design! -Novel EMG Performance Score Algorithm!

What's next for GRASP

-Account for more muscle groups with RheumBAND to give a fuller picture of grip ability -Update Performance Score Algorithm with consultation of more medical professionals (score component weights) -Mobile app development -Update shape of the Rheumball to be user-friendly to those with early to mid stages of RA
