For Design Review on Friday
Bring to clinic following Monday

Working meeting sparked more brainstorming:3 Concept selection doesn't have a way to show engineering difficulty

Post was thought to be bad idea.

May actually work

Discussion to work out how posts could work


Issues: if poles were movable you wouldn't know where they were before Need a mat to track distance from pole to pole

idea: protractor mat to be in front of patient then distance would tell you your angles

Needs to be better than what PT are doing now. It is very simple to have them touch your hand.

-will have to set up distances -will have to measure angles -input into computer

Modular design

Hub=microcontroller with usb inputs


start --> how many posts --> post locations --> patient information(recall from existing or new?)


each post would be modular wire each post to computer


-draw modular design

Make out of plastic and build out of opaque plexi glass recess button so it is flush with the button
