A team of Indian American students and professors at New York University Tandon School of Engineering has created a way to help the rehabilitation process for stroke victims through smartphone-integrated wearable devices.
NYU Tandon professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering Vikram Kapila guided the students throughout the project. Kapila, who also oversees the engineering school’s Mechatronics Lab, was assisted by Dr. Preeti Raghavan, of NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation Ambulatory Care Center.
Raghavan helped students Ashwin Raj Kumar and Sai Prasanth Krishnamoorthy transform the original idea into a working prototype.
