Joint movement, Rheumatoid arthritis, Smart glove
Arthritis is a disabling and agonizing disease. Rheumatoid Arthritis is a disease that affects joints of the body. RA disease results in a reduction of the physical activity level of the patient. Traditional methods require a personal examination for analysis of arthritis rehabilitation. In this paper, we presented the design of a smart motion sensing glove through the integration of sensors, processors, and flex sensor technology. The proposed glove facilitates the rehabilitative process through smart technology. The glove uses breathe-able glove, MCB (Motion Sensing Glove), microcontroller unit, five finger flexible sensors, 16 IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), Arduino Uno to detect joint movement. By examining the movement of joints the physician prescribes medicines accordingly. Traditional ways of diagnosis are less accurate landing the patient in trouble whereas our glove provides accurate and original data value of the joint movement. No environmental issues can affect the accuracy and hence technology being used at its best to human wellness.
