Development of an Engaging Training Tool to Provide Superior Muscle Computer Interfaces for Rehabilitation of Neuromusculoskeletal Injuries

Project: Research project

Project Details


Dr. Woodward will be responsible for developing the physical and software interface between an embedded systems module that performs myoelectric pattern recognition and commercially available virtual reality (VR) headsets. This works builds on our previous work which has resulted in a wireless capable embedded system. This system will be modified to physically connect with a newly developed silicone gel liner, and interfaced with motion tracking software. A software API will be created using they python programming language so that variables on the embedded system can be streamed to VR applications. The receiver module will be created using both the python and C# programming languages and the module will be compatible with Unity 3D game development engine. Dr. Woodward previous education and experience in developing hardware and software for myoelectric control applications make him a qualified candidate for this work.
