Abstract

We take for granted the ability to smile, kiss, or close our eyes at night, all of which can be affected by facial paralysis. This condition may strike anyone at any time, regardless of age or gender. The project aims to develop a pair of glasses that discreetly provides real-time feedback to the wearer about their facial muscle function, helping them practice their rehabilitative exercises regularly and correctly, thereby speeding recovery of normal, symmetric facial expressions. The glasses will contain all the required EMG sensors in a compact form factor, they will provide sensor data to a mobile application installed on a mobile phone or tablet. The mobile application will provide daily exercises and feedback to allow the patients to monitor their own progress through the rehabilitation process and will also pass on valuable information to therapists via a website. Therapists will monitor the progress of their patients and adjust exercise routines as required. They will also provide feedback through in application messaging and feedback tools while providing in depth analysis tools to spot potential problems such as synkinesis.
