Description

Physical therapy is a method of exercise treatment that promotes healing and rehabilitation for an injured area of the body. Wrist injuries, while commonly benefit from physical therapy, have few exercise machines dedicated towards improving mobility of the wrist while also strengthening it. We wish to research and design an exercise machine that improves on existing designs as well as adds additional features, such as progress tracking and a real time rep weigh display. Using existing designs, we will determine their disadvantages and develop a more complete solution to aid in physical therapy wrist rehabilitation.
