Automated Paralysis Patient Assistant Glove
The paper discusses the high incidence of paralysis in India and the challenges faced by individuals with mobility impairments. Paralysis is a condition where a person loses the ability to move a section of their body due to damage to the nervous system. Individuals with paralysis often require assistance in daily activities and may have difficulty communicating their needs effectively. The system aims to assist those who are partially paralysed or have other mobility impairments who have some mobility in their fingers or hands, through a wearable glove equipped with flex sensors, a voice processor, a speaker, and a GSM module. The glove enables patients to communicate their needs through voice commands and send text messages to their caregivers. The sensors in the glove detect the patient's movements, which are mapped to predetermined input data provided to the Arduino. Also, other sensors like temperature sensors and pulse sensors are embedded in the glove to monitor patients' health. This allows the patient to be self-sufficient and helps monitor their health efficiently even in the absence of a caregiver. The suggested method is straightforward and does not require sophisticated hardware setups or extensive software development.
