Automated Paralysis Patient Healthcare System Project
We come across hospitals and NGO’s serving paralytic patients who have their whole or partial body disabled by the Paralysis attack. These people in most cases are not able to convey their needs as they are neither able to speak properly nor do they convey through sign language due to loss in motor control by their brain. In such a situation we propose a system that helps disabled person in displaying a message over the LCD by just simple motion of any part of his body which has motion abilities. This system also takes care of the situation wherein no one is present to attend the patient and thus sending a message through GSM of what he wants to convey in SMS. Our proposed system works by reading the tilt direction of the user part. The working of the device here is shown by holding in the fingers of the mobile hand. The user now just needs to tilt the device in a particular angle to convey a message. Tilting the device in different directions conveys a different message. Here we use accelerometer in order to measure the statistics of motion. It then passes on this data to the microcontroller. The microcontroller processes the data and displays the particular message as per input obtained. The microcontroller now displays the associated message on the LCD screen. It also sounds a buzzer along with message as soon as it receives motion signal from the accelerometer. If there was no one to attend to the message displayed on the LCD, the patient can choose to tilt the device for some more amount of time which will trigger an SMS to be sent through a GSM modem to the registered care taker of the patient with the message that the patient wants to convey. In this way the Automated Paralysis Patient Care System truly automates the care taking ability of the patient which ensures a timely attention to the patient and thus for a good health of the patient.
