Development of Home Electrical Appliance Control Circuit for Quadriplegia Paralyzed Patients via Bluetooth technology

Authors:

Abstract

This research aims to apply the Bluetooth technology to control home electrical appliances by using facial gestures for patients with severe paralysis or the absence of arms and legs. This system used the EMG Muscle Sensor Module to measure the electrical signalgenerated by the muscles of facial expressions. After that, the Arduino micro-controller board is used to process electrical signals and to control the operation of home electrical appliances. From the experiment, we found that in the case when sender and receiver have no obstacle. The system has a full capability at 100% in the transmission distance about 1-7 meters. But when the system has some obstacles between sender and receiver, the performance is dropped down to only 1-4 meters. This research will be of great benefit to disabled or elderly people who are unable to move their arms and legs, as well as those who may be insecure if used directly with electrical equipment such as quadriplegia. In addition, the system can record muscle signal patterns to apply signal data in other fields in the near future.

Introduction Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Recent data support the possibility that person-centred, self-management interventions can reduce dependence after stroke. However, there is limited information on the generalisability and optimum dose of these interventions. Methods The Taking Charge After Stroke (TaCAS) study is a multicentre, investigator-blinded, randomised controlled trial recruiting 400 participants following acute stroke from seven hospitals in New Zealand. All patients discharged to community living who have ongoing symptoms at time of discharge (modified Rankin scale>0) will be eligible. Participants will be randomly assigned to one Take Charge session, two Take Charge sessions 6 weeks apart or control. Outcomes The primary outcome will be the Physical Component Summary score of the Short-Form 36 at 12 months post stroke. Secondary outcomes will include dependence (modified Rankin scale), performance in activities of daily living (Barthel Index) and carer strain (Caregiver Strain Index), at 6 and 12 months post stroke. All analyses will be conducted on an intention-to-treat basis. Ethics and dissemination The TaCAS study is funded by a Health Research Council of New Zealand grant. It has been approved by the Central Health and Disability Ethics Committee (15/CEN/115). Results will be published and presented at relevant stroke meetings within New Zealand and internationally, informing the use of a self-management intervention after stroke. Trial registration Australia and New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry ACTRN12615001163594. Date registered 02-11-2015. Medical Research Institute of New Zealand Registry TCS01.

The operant conditioning chamber is a cornerstone of animal behavioral research. Operant boxes are used to assess learning and motivational behavior in animals, particularly for food and drug reinforcers. However, commercial operant chambers cost several thousands of dollars. We have constructed the Rodent Operant Bucket (ROBucket), an inexpensive and easily assembled open-source operant chamber based on the Arduino microcontroller platform, which can be used to train mice to respond for sucrose solution or other liquid reinforcers. The apparatus contains two nose pokes, a drinking well, and a solenoid-controlled liquid delivery system. ROBucket can run fixed ratio and progressive ratio training schedules, and can be programmed to run more complicated behavioral paradigms. Additional features such as motion sensing and video tracking can be added to the operant chamber through the array of widely available Arduino-compatible sensors. The design files and programming code are open source and available online for others to use.

Paralysis is defined as the complete loss of muscle function in any part of the body. It occurs when there is a problem with the passage of messages between the muscles and the brain. Some paralyzed people cannot move even a single part of the body other than their eyes. Hence, the main aim of this paper is to design a real time interactive system that can assist the paralyzed to control appliances such as lights, fans etc. or by playing pre-recorded audio messages, through a predefined number of eye blinks. Image processing techniques have been implemented in order to detect the eye blinks. In our system, the face tracking is accomplished by using a set of trained Haar cascade classifier, and a template matching technique is employed to track the eye. Initially, the involuntary blinks of the paralyzed person are used to locate the patient's eyes by finding the number of connected components in a frame. Once the eyes are detected, an online template is created which is then used to track the patient's eye.

Home automation or smart home industry have seen dramatic growth in past years and will continue to in future as per the market requirements and it benefits. In the proposed paper we have tried to develop a home automation system that is affordable than the available similar products in market. Smart home or home automation involves the controlling and automation of electrical appliances such as lights, fans, heating, air-conditioner and other home appliances such as refrigerator, dish washer etc. that uses Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Home automation system consists switches and sensors connected to a central hub from which the systems is controlled with a user-interface that is interacted via a wall mounted terminal, mobile phone software or via web interface.
