Overview
Overview Yeroushalmi, Joseph Youssef

  • 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
