We are working on this project namely Hand talk: Interpreter for the Differently Abled that translates hand gestures into a particular message. Flex Sensors fixed with the glove pick up the gesture made by the individual and then with the help of Arduino, that analog input is converted into digital for various gestures. For every particular gesture there is specific digital output and that digital output for specific gesture is reserved for specific message. So, when the individuals do that particular gesture, the predefined message for that gesture is displayed on the LCD along with a beep (sound) and that specific message is also transmitted in the form of text or call with the help of GSM module to the various registered numbers.
For instance, if the patient perform a gesture of fist (most often we people form the fist in case of fear, emergency), there would be a message displayed on the LCD: “CRITICAL SITUATION” or “EMERGENCY” along with a beep and that particular message would also be transmitted in the form of text or call to the Doctor’s phone or the Relative’s one.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
