We are proposing a system of eight independent wireless EMG sensors (iEMGs) that attach to the skin with a small adhesive pad. Each sensor independently transmits the muscle activity data in real time to our Data Receiver Card (DRC) that can be mounted in any PC. Our application software will collect, analyze and display the acquired data. Each sensor will be small and lightweight, minimizing the effect on a patient's movement. It will also be easier to setup as there are no wires that must be carefully routed and attached to the patient's body. The patient will have the freedom to move naturally anywhere within 100 meters of the DRC.WMD will be using proven EMG sensors and established wireless communications techniques to develop the iEMG solution. Our product will be more portable, easier to use, and more accurate than the current available systems. By eliminating all wires, iEMG can be quickly and easily setup in any environment. For example, it can be setup at a track to monitor a sprinter's performance or brought to the office to investigate the causes of lower back pain. The lack of wires greatly reduces the restriction on the subject's movement which, in turn, leads to more accurate diagnoses.
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.
