The physical therapy clinic at Nazareth College currently makes use of goniometers to measure range of motion. There is usually a need for two physical therapists to obtain the measurement with stroke patients. A motion tracking device would enable such measurements to be made in an automated or semi-automated fashion. This type of tracking device could be combined with exercise equipment and a telemedicine based environment to provide a more comprehensive solution in terms of rehabilitation and therapy. The envisioned tracking system will consist of a flexible and potentially expandable processor based system that incorporates position sensors and a video camera to acquire and analyze clinically relevant motion information.

Project Readiness PackageThe Project Readiness Page documents customer needs and expectations, project deliverables (including time frame), budget, and personnel / organizations affiliated with the project. It will serve as the primary source of information for students necessary during Phase 0 (Planning) to develop a SD I plan and schedule including specific deliverables and due dates. The Project Readiness Package will also support Faculty evaluation of project suitability in terms of depth, scope, and student / faculty resources by discipline.
This outline for the posting of team created documents follows the general product development process presented in the textbook "Product Design and Development" by Ulrich and Eppinger.
Portions of the team documents have been prepared by a DPM student prior to the launch of this project. This information is intended to help get the team started with a first draft needs assessment and work breakdown structure. The team members can adapt this information as the project progresses.
Keep in mind that everything you include in this web tree is visible to the world and the general public. If you have documents that reflect work in progress, or contain data that has not been fully vetted, then it may be better to include those internal working documents in the private section of the web tree, or in the project repository proper, outside of the web tree. Note that anyone with Guest or higher memberhsip in your project can read your entire project repository. Anyone with an Editor or higher membership can makes changes to your repository. All Observer members can view, but not edit, the web portion of your repository.
These links provide a basic starting point for your team to prepare a comprehensive web site about your project.
After you get started on the project, you may want to replace these introductory paragraphs with a photograph of your team. Near the conclusion of your design project, you may also wish to include a photo of your finished product.
As you conclude the project, include links to all of your finished and fully polished documents here. The previous sections of the web site contain the entire design history of your project. This section contains the finished products. Add more links as needed.
