SENSOR SYSTEM FOR SPINALINJURY RISK REDUCTION
Mälardalen University, School of Innovation, Design and Engineering.
2016 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis proposes a solution in which Inertial Measurement Units(IMU) are placed along the thoracic section of the spine and measures the movement and rotation of the spine and subsequently also the back. The proposed solution should be able to help the user reduce the risk of injuries related to posture or lifting. Four IMU sensor devices has been constructed and they communicate with an Arduino Uno by means of I2C. Due to the project being at thesis level the amount of time available is limited and the practical parts of the project are scaled down to creating a basic proof of concept system to test the feasibility of the proposed solution. The proposed system is intended to one day become part of a wireless body area network(WBAN).
