overview
Overview
  • Review of design motivation and ideas
  • Our prototype:
    • (Current) Features
    • (Future) Versions
  • What sets us apart from the competition (ideally)
  • Testing/ proof of principle
    • Tremors induce appropriate muscle response
      • Oscilloscope readings
      • Literature findings
    • Sensors detect abnormal arm movement
      • LEDs
  • Next steps
problem clinical motivation
Problem & Clinical Motivation
  • Target: 5.5Million Americans
  • Problem: Intention Tremors in the arm
  • Clinical Motivation: Solution to perform daily tasks
