Physiotherapy device

Medical device that integrates electrotherapy and thermotherapy for muscular rehabilitation

This project was focused on integrating two muscular rehabilitation techniques widely used and aimed to solve several problems discovered after a series of visits made to different physiotherapy facilities in Bucaramanga (Colombia). Those issues ranged from a risk for the patient due to heat overexposure, to accelerated deterioration of specialized furniture.

The device is used through a handset that connect two pairs of carbon electrodes and two flexible heating packs which work with a resistance wire. The 240x128 LCD display allows to see the sensed temperature and all the connected component status. 

Continuous feedback was received from the physiotherapy sports center at the university campus, and both, experts and patients, which led to the development of an outstanding product.
