Akash's grandmother's knee surgery
What it does
Assists patients to see how to correctly perform rehabilitative exercises that are critical to recovery. This product will be able to provide real-time feedback though an automated process which can also improve accuracy and reliability of said exercises. We will be able to quantify data at a fraction of the cost by utilizing small and lightweight body-worn sensors as opposed to going to see a physical therapist several times throughout treatment.
How I built it
Utilizing small and lightweight body-worn sensors (IMU's) and an Arduino 101
Challenges I ran into
Connecting two IMUs to a single arduino, programming and meeting the deadline
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
How the team came together under intense pressure
What I learned
Team work and collaboration are crucial to making a project successful.
What's next for PT CLINIC
A more refined product which feature more comfort, more application, more real-time data analysis
