Day 1.a

So the real reason for blogging is to get my work out there and for myself and others to be able to track progress. As part of my thesis work at Georgia Tech, I am working on a wearable device to help motivate people to do their physical therapy. The first installation of this includes a knee brace type of device that the wearer dons when doing physical therapy(assuming, at this point, that the affected area is the knee). With some neoprene, Hytrel (thanks to the good folks at DuPont) and electroluminescent strips, I was able to wire up a low tech version to prove this concept.
