Things used in this project

Hardware components:
GY-521 MPU-6050 3 Axis Gyroscope + Accelerometer Module For Arduino
Designed and printed by Purdue MIND in Dr. Pedro Irazoqui’s lab (Center for Implantable Devices)
Velcro sleeve with mount
We sewed this custom glove/sleeve together by hand. It even has conductive fabric in it for a better EMG reading.
Conductive Fabric
Used to make the electrodes
Ardgen 101
Arduino Arduino 101 & Genuino 101
The 101 allows us to have an extra accelerometer on the base without using extra space. We also tampered with the idea of pairing the device with an app, and the builtin Bluetooth module on the 101 would be super convenient for that!
Software apps and online services:
Ide web
Arduino Arduino IDE
D94d qxu
Autodesk Fusion 360
Hand tools and fabrication machines:
09507 01
Soldering iron (generic)
