Lighten Sensor Patch
By iterating different forms of a wearable sensor on paper it emerged that a Band-Aid inspired form is scalable in terms of putting multiple sensors on different muscles of the body. Moreover, leveraging on accustomed form and application of band-aid this ‘smart band-aid’ makes a familiar addition to daily use.
Technically, the sensor patch gathers raw muscle activity and motion data with the help of EMG sensor and accelerometer respectively. That raw data is uploaded to the cloud platform which is responsible for synthesizing it using machine learning to figure out patterns. The patterns help in predicting the pain based on all the previous physical activities done. Finally, alerts and suggestions are sent to the patients and their network of caregivers.
