Peter runs a business called nCounters which specialises in the design and construction of custom data acquisition systems. One such example Peter will be showing at the Faire is a portable limb load monitor, essentially a device which offers biofeedback to the wearer. Designed to assist those recovering from surgery or a stroke, biofeedback allows its users to reach their treatment goals in half the usual time.
Peter’s clever load monitor uses pressure pads inserted into normal shoes in order to provide audio and visual biofeedback to the wearer. The load monitor also has add-ons for measuring seating posture and knee movement with all data recorded on SD card for later uploading for analysis. Peter and nCounters is a great example of creative problem solving making a difference. Come see the load monitor at the Faire or check out Peter’s YouTube video for further details.
