FES Assistive Device

October 9 Update

We are working on incorporating two sensors to our design. The reason we need to do this is because we need one sensor to detect the initial movement of the subject’s shoulder and the second sensor is used to detect the movement of the forearm attempting to perform the reaching movement. Using our IMU sensors (MPU 6050) and the Arduino board, we¬†connected them onto the bread board using the schema shown below.

Scheme 2 GY-521

After the hardware was connected properly, we are now developing the Arduino code that gathers data from both sensors.
