Computer control using electromyography (EMG)

Project Summary: My project team designed an EMG system that would use muscle movements to control a golf video game. The purpose was to aid in muscular rehabilitation after events such as a stroke. Intro and Background: This project was the final assignment f or my Medical Instrumentation course. It was Read More …

Arduino based 3-Lead ECG

Project Summary: This project was part of my Medical Instrumentation course at UW – Madison. The assignment was to design a 3-lead ECG, acquire the signal using an Arduino Uno, and process the signal in LabVIEW. We implemented the Pan-Tompkins heartbeat algorithm in real time in LabVIEW. We designed our Read More …

CaRe Monitor – Infant Cardiac Respiratory Monitor

Project Summary: Helped develop a low-cost, low-power infant cardiac respiratory monitor for use in developing countries to combat Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The system consisted of an Atmega328 microcontroller, high-frequency signal generator, multiple lead electrode interface, power monitoring circuitry and indicator LEDs. I also developed a semi-automated test system to be Read More …

Wireless armband gesture-based controller

  Final video demonstration of the wireless armband gesture controller (Despite the short hair that IS me in the video) Project Summary: Developed a wearable device that used body movements to wirelessly control some simple video games. The armband consisted of two EMGs (muscle sensors), an accelerometer, a flex sensor, Read More …

Active monitoring system for alpine skiers

Project Summary: Participated on a team to create a system that tracked the relative orientation and velocity of an alpine skier’s legs. This was in an effort to minimize common ACL injuries associated with certain falling positions. The system ultimately determined a proper DIN threshold (how easy it is for Read More …
