Project Summary

The LiveAbility Lab is a configurable research and development facility in Rochester dedicated to assessing the efficacy of assistive devices. This facility will provide a location for a wireless movement and force analysis system to capture and analyze contact forces and motions associated with individuals with movement impairments. The facility is currently unequipped, and there is no known prototype for this specific force and motion detection system desired for the customer. However, there are existing systems that do portions of what is desired.

The goal of the Ambulatory Force Monitoring System project is to design a sensor system that can be used by physicians to track the progress of their patients in their home environment. This system should not harm the individual, and will not affect their gait in any way. Attachment of all subsystems will not require any modification to shoes, garments, or walking assistance devices. The subsystem will be powered by a rechargeable battery that allows for 8 hours of operation before recharging, and it will be continuously monitored using a wireless beacon system. The resulting design must be portable, waterproof, and able to communicate wirelessly with a data logging system.
