@ INTERFILIERE HONG KONG – March 27 & 28, 2018
SMART TANK TOP TO MONITOR THE PHYSIOLOGICAL PARAMETERS OF ADOLESCENT SCOLIOSIS PATIENTS IN DOING THE SCHROTH EXERCISES
by Hin Ting (Scarlet) WONG
Poor posture which often occurs as a result of one’s daily activities. But maybe it is also a symptom of Scoliosis!
Scarlet has conducted in-depth study to better understand the needs of patients with scoliosis, the principle of the Scoliosis Specific exercise and their benefits. She has looked for the most efficient sensors and fabrics that could responded to this issue. And finally, she was able to design and develop a prototype allowing patient to practice safely their exercises at home.
Doctors advise patient to do some home exercise on a daily basis but, actually, if you do not do the exercise the right way you can hurt and harm yourself. Let Scarlet tells you about her idea!
She will be on Interfilière Hong Kong on March 27th. to let you know more about her project. Make sure to stop by the HONG KONG POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY booth and vote for her if you like her project.
