Hey team, great discussion yesterday. I wanted to share some videos with you about exoskeleton technology. There are a couple basic implementations but the one I find most interesting is the one where an electrical impulse from a muscle is used as input to move a motor or an actuator.
If you are interested I can share some more literature with you.
For now enjoy some of these videos:
Hey team! Last week, you guys were off to a great start with some interesting potential directions of: 1) getting in and out of a car while in a wheelchair during the rain (not too fun!) 2) storing the wheelchair in the trunk safely and securely. Would be good to do some journey maps of this as well as online research to see what else you can find out about these topics. You can assess- are these challenges for other users as well (can check out forums)? Are there existing solutions to these challenges? If so, what is and isn't working/what else is needed? I am trying to set- aside time every Monday to stop by FDAA projects and comment/give feedback. Let me know if there's any specific files I should look at or if you have any questions. Talk soon!
Loved reading through your guys' latest meeting notes. Sounds like you are talking to some fascinating people! I wanted to share that one of DFA's advisors is also the president of http://www.myomo.com They are based in Boston. If you guys would like to visit them or at least connect to Paul, let me know!
