Carpal tunnel splint

by Tarana Gupta on April 16, 2013

VibroAesthetics :   Project ideas: 1.Wearable muscle movement sensing neck device for paralytic patients. 2. Wearable wrist movement/health sensing device for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Why?: Because both my wrist and neck hurts a lot.   Final project: Wearable wrist movement/health sensing device for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Why? : because wrist needed immediate attention.   What is Carpal […] more…

Update on wrist health.

by Tarana Gupta on April 4, 2013

This week  I tried working with the data coming from one of the flex sensors (wrist extension). I mapped it to the reading from goniometer. Most of my time went is trying to save the data coming from sensors into a .csv file format in processing and connecting with bluetooth mate silver (https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/264).   Plus […] more…

Project Update: Wrist Health Device

by Tarana Gupta on March 26, 2013

Work in progress. To start with the device making process I had to spent a lot of time remembering to how to use Arduino and made the list of important millstones for the project. Which helped me in the conceptual process too. Experiments: 1. Just for an experimental purpose I started with the muscle wire […] more…

I met Pinky Magbanuaan occupational therapist in NYC, last Friday and we had a elabrote discussion about CTS and my project idea. I also read few articles and papers on the syndrome and current generally accepted treatments and precautionary measures in the area. Human hand anatomy . The human hand facilitates flexion-extension, and radial and ulnar deviation. […] more…

Project ideas : TaranaGupta

by Tarana Gupta on February 25, 2013

1. Human wrist movement monitoring interactive visualization tool with sensors to alert to take a break and exercise. Software will visualize wrist movement and force exerted on the muscles. 2. Wearable gesture sensing neck device based on six neck movements for paralytic patients. Kindly read my blog post: http://itp.nyu.edu/~tg1047/taranagupta/ more…

Ergonomics in a Syringe.
