|Project Summary||Project Information|
Roughly 7 million Americans suffer from some form of Essential Tremor, most commonly manifesting in their arms and hands. An Essential Tremor is an involuntary rhythmic shaking in the appendage of a patient.
Currently these tremors can be treated through various forms of prescribed medications, but these often involve unpleasant side effects, regular checkups, and self-monitoring. They also tend to lose their potency over time, requiring increases in daily dosage.
This project is focused on updating the efficacy and functionality of the system and design implemented in a previous year of MSD, during which alpha and beta prototype devices were created.
The expected result is a wearable tremor mitigation device prototype that addresses the needs of the customer. This will be done by increasing the robustness of the prototype, improving the design of the mechanical subsystem, and improving the control logic operating the braking system. In the future, this should allow for repeatable testing with future test rig teams and improvements to system design to increase functionality of mitigation.
