|Project Summary||Project Information|
Essential Tremor is a movement disorder that causes rhythmic shaking. The tremor can occur to the arms, hands, fingers and progress to the head, neck, and voice.
Team 17044 developed a wearable device for patients with Essential Tremor to mitigate their tremors so that they can function in everyday life. The team had no way of testing the device with anatomically and physiologically correct forms and motions and had no easy way to obtain feedback on the performance of the device.
Team 18045 developed Tremor Mitigation Test Rig which was to resemble an anatomically correct arm that replicates Essential Tremor. The team had problems with the electrical motors to show the robotic arm shaking.
The goal of this project is to complete the Tremor Mitigation Test Rig. The test rig must mimic a human arm and be able to measure the performance of the tremor mitigation device. The test rig is limited by a budget of $1000, dimensions of 2x2x3 (L x W x H) ft, the physiological data collected by the Data Acquisition team, and the real range of motion of the human arm. Our team aims to have a test rig that can incorporate patient data on Essential Tremor to mimic the motions in order to allow the mitigation device to be properly tested and receive feedback on its performance.
