Abstract

The aim of this project is to design and build a system to aid patients in their rehabilitation after suffering a stroke. A stroke is one of the most serious conditions that an individual can suffer from, and the rehabilitation is often a long and difficult process. For many with movement effects, the sit-to-stand exercise is an important step in rehabilitation. The focus of this ongoing project is to create a system to assist sit-to-stand rehabilitation through the use of haptic feedback on balance. In this poster we present our initial prototype using standard smartphone accelerometers linked wirelessly to Arduino based vibration feedback modules mounted on the patients' legs. Initial feedback on the prototype is promising.
