Final Post

Finally the project is complete.


  • Coded a fall detection algorithm
  • Coded a gait and posture detection algorithm
  • Added pressure sensitivity
  • Added cloud functionality
  • Designed a nice, clean user interface to visualize all the information in a better way
  • Presented at the wearable tech showcase and received amazing feedback

Weekly Update IV

Up till now almost all features have been completed except for pressure sensitivity. I used arduino nano as my micro controller and two pressure sensors placed at the front and at the back of the insole. A 9V battery was used to power the hardware.   Hurdles: Not enough space […]

Weekly Update III

I have completed the software portion of my project but I will keep adding more features. Right now I am building the hardware, so I estimate that about 70-80%  of the work is complete. Nothing has changed since the initial pitch, I just decided to add more functionality. However, now I am […]

Weekly Update II

I am now working on detecting bad posture and gait. My fall detection algorithm works. It does have a few quirks but those happen rarely. Now I plan to work on gait detection.     Roadblocks : 1).   Developing an algorithm that detects bad gait is more challenging since […]

Weekly Update I

So far I have been waiting for my materials to arrive. So in the meantime I decided to work on the software part of my project. I have been working on the app that will connect my phone with the shoe and extend its functionality.  I also decided to to add […]

Gait Shoes

Project Title: Project Team Members: Tushar Verma Project Description:  A device that will measure pressure exerted by the body on the foot at different points. The data will be used for creating a pressure distribution profile for that individual. This will be used to recommend whether arch support for the […]

Smart Sleeve

Idea/Purpose: I created a device that provides relief to people suffering from varicose veins and muscle soreness. The idea here is to use vibrations to mimic a massage and thus use it to increase blood circulation.

Design: The sleeve is designed to be worn on an arm or a leg and has Velcros that make it adjustable. This allows it to adapt to various sizes. The FLORA board is also attached to the sleeve by Velcros so it can be easily removed before the sleeve is washed.

Electronics: The FLORA board is connected to an accelerometer that detects motion. So whenever the person is still, the sensor turns on the vibration motors and  when the person moves it turns them off. The LED seen in the video is just an on board Neo Pixel which is there to show that the device works (i.e the LED and the vibration motors either both turn off or both turn on at the same time).

More time: Because I finished my project on time and my device works as expected, I would go for more money instead of more time. If I had more money then I would buy a good quality sleeve (or stitch a better one myself) , better vibrations pads and probably would have added more functionality (heating pad for example).
