The ProjectThe Detailed Project Summary (REV AD) goes into detail regarding the following section.
Project BackgroundThe Nazareth Physical Therapy Clinic treats mainly stroke patients who have difficulty walking. At the moment, the clinic has several devices that measure such attributes as balance and weight distribution. As of yet, they do not have a method for dynamically measuring the angles at the hip, knee, and ankle joints.
Problem StatementThe end goal of this project is to provide Nazareth college with a working device that accurately measures the specified joint angle while the patient is walking.
- Provide the Nazareth Clinic with a working device that will measure joint angles.
- Make the Device easy to use.
- Display captured information in a user-friendly environment.
- Avoid interference with other medical or physical
- Fully functional motion tracking device for the Nazareth College Physical Therapy Clinic.
- Detailed instruction and troubleshooting manual.
- Training session with the physical therapy staff.
- Two page summary for National Science Foundation
Issues & Risks
- Obtaining measurement from chosen sensors.
- Coordinating information obtained from individual sensors to compute angles.
- Transmitting data to the computer without the use of wires.
- Creating a robust and secure attachment method.
- Meeting schedule deadlines (both team and project generated).
- Developing a reliable device.
Summary of Needs
- Light weight
- Easy to use/set-up
- Battery life exceeds patient session
- Avoids hindering patient mobility
- Imports/exports data
- Display information obtained
- Display is user friendly
- Comparison of new and old data
- Sensors are firmly attached
- Does not interfere with other medical devices
- Complies with federal, state, and local laws
- Instruction & troubleshooting manual
- Summary for National Science Foundation
- Training session for clinical staff
