The subject is a child with physical and mental disabilities as listed below:
-Physical disability of 98%.
-Troubles holding her own body.
-Troubles for communicating with her environment.
Her parents help her currently in her daily activities, and has a training dog for the early detection of epileptic attacks.
Her mother asked us for an assist and guide mechanic system so the child could move around her house.
Courses of action on the Proyect
The objective is to develop a low cost system to monitor and assist the child and alert automatically her parents when the child suffers an epileptic attack.
We will use the system smartphone with Android in which develop the following issues:
Monitoring of vital parameters of the child: heart rhythm, neuronal electrical activity and muscle contractions.
Geopositioning of the child
Developing a communication system with the child
Developing a movement assistant
Developing a global sensor vest with helmet for monitoring neural electrical activity in the centers of epileptic discharge.
Developing a mechanical walker to maintain the upright position and help to move of the child.
