Analysis of EMG signals
There is valid proven existence of a itch scratch brain cognitive movement pathway. So we will try to distract the patients when they want to produce pleasant from scratchings.
We will analyse electromyographic (EMG) signals from muscle sensors to predict the itch gesture. And non-invasive feedback signals like melody, music or virtual reality will be broadcasted through Apps in a timely manner.
With the help of frequency analysis from Google Deep Learning framework Tensorflow and wavelet transformations we have identified relationships between the signals received from electrodes setup on hand muscle. The detected interactions were visualised in a diagram above, which shows their relationships and respective intensity.
The project is related to non–pharmacological management of chronic itch.
