  1. Fall2006 Mid-semester Presentation

  2. photo:www.enablingdevices.com AAC • Current AAC System • AAC Website link: • http://epics.ecn.purdue.edu/svat/staticsite

  3. AAC- Work done this semester • Collected the surveys from Amy. • Worked on the timing for the static site. Incorporated cascading style sheets. • Brainstormed design ideas for the dynamic website • Redesigning and programming the dynamic website.

  4. AAC- Work to be completed by the end of the semester • Create a sample user page dynamically off the databases. • Update voices and implement preloading for the static site. • Page by page layout design for the dynamic website.

  5. QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS?! Thank you for your time!

  6. < Quantitative measurement Toy> Spring 2006, Purdue University EPICS

  7. Project Description <Quantitative measurement Toys> -Light up pressing Toy Pressure Gauge VS. Color 10~20kgf/cm² : Red 20~30kgf/cm² : Blue 30~40kgf/cm² : Green etc.. -Whack-a-mole game

  8. Toy Application Areas • Reaction timing measurement • Muscle strength measurement • Measured Data Transfer wirelessly to PC / PDA for Therapists

  9. Project Packaging(Whack-a-Mole Game)

  10. Project Packaging (Light up pressing toy)

  11. Devices we used • Micro processor controller(9S12C32) • Accelerometer • LCD / LED • Electric Luminescent wires

  12. Programs we used • Assembly language - Microcontroller - LCD Display - Calibrating the measured data - Generating Sound -Time Counting

  13. Flowchart of Whack-a-Mole Game Start Music Game 1 Game 2 Select Mode Easy Hard LED on 4 secs LED on 2 secs LED on Mole 1,2,3,4 Yes Hit No Green LED Red LED Success sound Failure sound Display No # of hit the mole (15 times) Yes Displays Avg. Reaction Time & Pressure Strength Ending Music

  14. Time Line

  15. Future Consideration • Other possibilities • sequence game for reaction time and accuracy measurement • Punching game for reaction time and strength measurement • To use Bluetooth Module & Adaptor in the system • Data display Software for PC

  16. QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS?! Thank you for your time!

  17. SVAT Vent TeamFall 2006 Mid-Semester Report Natalie Beltz, Rachel Hagy, Vikram Anand, Harsha Ranganath

  18. Project Background • Developing a safer mode of transportation for children on ventilators at St. Vincent’s Rehabilitation Center • Lack of organization is potentially hazardous to the child • Many pieces of equipment increase preparation time and difficulty

  19. Project Background • Everything separate • Equipment hanging • Tubing hanging • Safety risk

  20. Semester Objectives • Work with St. Vincent’s to create a carrier for the occupational therapist • Ensure safety • Make child transfer more convenient • Maintain equipment accessibility

  21. Equipment Involved Apnea Monitor Oxygen Canister Suction machine in its bag Ventilator

  22. Main Equipment • Ventilator – 11”x14”x4” 14.8 lbs (with ventilator battery) • Ventilator battery – 4”x6.5”x2.5” • Ventilator back-up battery – 11”x9”x9.5” 28.2 lbs • Suction – 10”x13.5”x7” 9.8 lbs • Oxygen tank – 6.5”x15”x6” 8 lbs • Apnea monitor – 9.5”x7.5”x8” 12 lbs • Apnea monitor battery – 3.5”x5”x3” 2.8 lbs • Tubing

  23. Other Equipment • Emergency • Ambu bag • Tracheotomy tubes • Catheter • Syringe • Potential • IV pump • Feeding pump

  24. Previous Designs • One large unit for all equipment (Fall ’05) • Two units for weight distribution (Spring ’06) • Modified Suitcase • Attached to stroller using removable hooks • Wheeled behind stroller • Secured with straps on outside • Organized using foam/neoprene dividers • Separate Carrying Backpack • Contains “essential” equipment • Attached to the child • Emergency equipment • Stored in back of stroller

  25. Previous Design Flaws • One unit system • Space • Weight • Impractical • Two unit system • Tubing connections compromised • Inability to reach power buttons/view vital monitors • Equipment is not secure in the fabric pack • Pulling a suitcase is still cumbersome • 50 lbs. of heavy equipment in carrying pack

  26. Proposed Solution: Container • Use open plastic container rather than a fabric sack or suitcase to hold equipment • Provides easy access to equipment • Allows for visibility of monitors • Equipment stability and protection

  27. Proposed Solution: Ventilator • Mount ventilator on the side of the stroller (or container) with a metal hook • Facilitates heat dissipation • Reduces the weight of the container • Provides access to ventilator buttons • Allows for a more direct tubing pathway to the baby (safer)

  28. Place backup ventilator battery in the bottom Reduces the weight of the container Does not need to be easily accessible Improves weight distribution Proposed Solution: Battery

  29. Proposed Solution: Other • Attach hook on outside to organize tubing • Reduces risk of tubing snagging/damage • Reduces safety risk to therapists

  30. Work to be Completed • Find/build container to fit design • Take container to St. Vincent’s • Therapist approval and input • Modify if necessary

  31. Project Timeline

  32. Future Work for Next Semester • Car safety • Riley hospital as a new project partner • Home use-device for parents
