Wearable Pressure Sensors for Real-time Monitoring

This ME project concentrates on developing a mobile pressure sensing system for measuring physiological pressures from the human body. It has applications for fall detection, guiding exercise programmes, rehabilitation and surgical recovery. Technology includes MEMs pressure sensors, Bluetooth communication, microprocessors, cloud storage and computing.

Encapsulation is an important topic to maintain adequate environmental protection while maintaining pressure sensitivity and accuracy.
