Rehabilitation Robotics: Assemble and Program a Robotic Glove
December 1, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Event run by TechGirlz. Please email Donna Cusimano with any questions. Thank you!
In this workshop, students will assemble a soft robotic glove and program its sensors into a game directed at rehabilitating dexterity movements, commonly affected after a stroke. Students will learn about the importance of robotics in rehabilitation aid. Systems, like the robotic glove they create, use games to provide incentive which significantly improves the effectiveness of regular rehabilitation.
By developing their own robotic glove, students will learn the basics in circuitry, design, and Arduino programming, as well as the importance of rehabilitation robotics with their own basic gamified rehabilitative system.
Notes: The workshop is located on the first floor of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department. Students will need to bring a laptop with a USB port.
