P12005: Balance Tower


Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

This project is the continuation of P10005, seated balance tower. The primary focus is to update the balance tower by incorporating a second tower. Currently we have a tower that is built that has seven large panels in a vertical line that are separated by 3 tri-colored LEDs. When activated the LEDs will be blue, if the patient touches the target they will turn green and if they miss they will become red. A second tower will be added to the game to add more challenges for the patients.The two towers will communicate through a wireless module. Also, an update to the current wiring and program code will introduce more reliability and durability to the system.
