Project developed by: Thomas Amberg.


Issued from the course: Summer school in physical and wearable computing with Arduino.


An open project started by Thomas Amberg attempting to create a wearable “sense of balance” for people suffering balance disorders. Machines on the other hand are capable of sustaining an equilibrium (think Segway). It should therefore be possible to somehow superimpose machine equilibrium to a person’s own (broken) equilibrium. Just as a person’s shoulder on your side might give you security, an artificial stimulus might help you stay in balance.

The idea might not be novel, but it might still be worth a try to build such a system, preferably in an open, simple and affordable way.
