The Musical Rehabilitation Assistance System (MRAS) is a medical system designed to help therapists and patients during the rehabilitation process.  Our project will include the research and development of a tool that will provide auditory feedback to patients undergoing rehabilitation and to the physiotherapists administering the process. Currently, a patient would perform a certain motion or series of motions as instructed by a physiotherapist. The result is the performance of the action, successful or unsuccessful, and the response of the therapist. Our product adds automated feedback to the process, in the form of music, to assist in the learning process. This tool will be especially helpful for patients who choose to supplement their rehabilitation independently and will provide direct feedback to based on the movements taught by the physiotherapist.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
