We designed an EMG biofeedback device that will turn on a vibrating massage pad. The device will provide a child with Lissencephaly a physical stimulus triggered by their EMG signal. Through operant conditioning, the child will learn that he can use this device to create a pleasurable sensation for himself. We hope this will provide independence to the child. The design utilizes three surface electrodes to detect EMG signals from the child’s quadriceps. A six stage analog circuit processes the signal and powers the massage pad for 2.5 minutes if the EMG signal is sufficiently strong.
