Week 19

Individual Assignment

develop a plan for dissemination of your final project prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920x1080) and video clip (presentation.mp4, 1080p HTML5, < ~minute, < ~10 MB) and put them in your root directory.

Dissemination of final project (INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT)

My final project is a medical device. Due that I think a netx step, to validate the concept is write a paper.

I tried a lot of options for soft actuators, some of them are documented on week 20. But, I think a totally self contained device is mandatory to provide a really useful solution to patients with scoliosis.

So, the next scope, will be made a self contained or portable device, using soft actuators, with vaccum pumps and bateries.

Finally, the next steps or the plan, will be like this:

  • Design a fully portable device to correct the posture of patients with scoliosis with soft actuators.
  • Write a paper with an University interested on design of medical devices.
  • Contact with medicians to plan a validation with volunteers and extract some conclusions and improve the design.
  • Present the prototype, for fund and try to launch to market.

About the license

I think this kind of device could help so many people. Due this, I decided to use a CC licence. This license had many variations, like this:

Basically, If someone wants to use it, can do it. Even can make a commercial use, just need to mention the original author. Adittionally, if Someone creates a derivated work, It must be licenced the same or a not more restrictive licence. So, this is yhe licence will be used.
