Inspiration

Team member, Ali Ahmed, underwent a torn ankle ligament for which he desired to make more data-centric, and quantifiably progressive. The team at Sanabit used Myo to undertake this project.

How

The Myo is placed directly on the ankle, and with that, the doctor can prescribe initial workouts to help the ankle start retrieving its strength. By means of using the Gyroscope and accelerometer in the Myo, Sanabit will catalog various datasets oriented towards range of motion, as well as using the device's EMG (electromyography) to intake the varying muscle changes throughout the process of physiotherapy.

The Team
