Rehabilitation Stroke Arduino System Therapy Glove
AbstractNowadays, stroke has become one of the leading causes of adult incapacity and stroke is also the top ten causes for hospitalization in Malaysia. Nevertheless, stroke is a disease with a huge concern of sickness in the patients. Arduino Therapy Glove is a device that is used by the patient so it can serve as an assistant device and provide feedback while performing stroke rehabilitation therapy both at home and hospital. Arduino UNO, Arduino Nano, two Bluetooth, and three types of sensors will be used in this project. The main function of the sensor unit is to provide the main unit with information from all sensors that has been connected to the Arduino microcontroller board. The three sensors that connected directly to the Arduino, which are an accelerometer, force sensitive resistor, and flex. Accelerometer function is to measure the perimeter related to force generated from arm movement. Next, the flex sensor will provide the device with the information needed regarding the angle value between lower and upper arm. After that, force sensitive resistor is suitable to detect the muscle force due to muscle flexion and an extension activity.
Submission of an original manuscript to the Journal of Computing Technologies and Creative Content (JTeC) will be taken to mean that it represents original work not previoussly published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication. All submitted articles that are published by JTeC cannot be published anywhere by the authors unless with the permission by JTeC Editors. JTeC reserves the right to the publications of the articles it published, and reserves the right to reuse the articles elsewhere for academic purposes, while still retaining the names of the original authors with the original articles.
JTeC takes the stance that the publication of scholarly research is meant to disseminate knowledge and in a not-for-profit regime, benefits neither publisher nor author financially. It sees itself as having obligation to its author and to society to make content available online now that the technology allows for such possibility.
