Microchip that prevents the tearing of ligaments

Author:

Area:

Technology, anatomy.

Level:

High school.

Challenge:

Using Arduino technology and free software, we created our own microchip to measure the degree of torsion between the tibia and the femur. When this torsion exceeds 35 degrees, it sends an electric shock to the vastus lateralis of the quadriceps. This immobilises the person and prevents tearing. This solves one of the most common injuries in pilota players.

Teachers notes:

This project stems from the author’s personal interest and he decided to carry it out alone. Individual works are not usual, but we must be flexible and consider the needs and wishes of the students.
