Additional Roles: arduino prototyping, 3D modelling and rendering, 3D printing
The modern stroke therapy device to motivate patients to meet their goals and regain mobility.
Designed, prototyped, and personally presented a novel medical device at the RESNA student competition finals in Washington, D.C. representing my multi-disciplinary team of 5 engineering students. This project marked the start of my interest in design and rapid prototyping with 3D printing and Arduino leading me to pursue a Masters in design at TU Delft a couple years later.
Stroke survirors often must partake in physical therapy to regain full function of their hands. With current methods being outdated, Remobility redefines rehabilitation through light/vibration feedback and improved patient/doctor interaction. As recommended by doctors interviewed, 3 exercise components were developed to target the 3 essential therapeutic movements. Each component contains sensors to activate the light and vibration when the user interacts with it correctly.
