Have you ever wondered how you sleep at night? Devices like FitBit track sleep by analyzing your movement throughout the night, but they can’t look at what your brain is doing.
After a semester of learning about medical instrumentation, our class was challenged with the task of creating a wearable device to measure some biological variable. My partner and I chose to develop a headband that can look at what your brain does while asleep. The headband reads brain wave signals to monitor sleep patterns. It identifies how the user’s brain waves progress through alpha, beta, gamma, and delta phases during the night. The data can then be exported and analyzed in Excel.
