When attempting to study physiological and psychological areas of the human body researchers may encounter difficulties with developing testing methodologies that are both broad enough to encompass a large focus group yet narrow enough to target the specific research topic. Preliminary research alludes to the benefit of low frequency vibration in regaining muscle function in stroke victims, compression systems for calming autistic patients, and movement monitoring for improving athletic performance. The goal of this project was to create a medical testing apparatus in the form of a smart shirt that easily allows medical professionals to conduct research in areas of developmental disorders, stroke muscle rehabilitation and athletic monitoring.
