MIT TechTop is a Bootcamp organized in India where students from MIT and Indian engineering colleges collaborate together to work on some real-life problems faced by society. I in this Bootcamp we visited NGO for the differently-abled person and for blind people. Our team selected a group of kids suffering from Cerebral Palsy. We created an “Akele Therapy System” for them. The unique thing about this innovation was they will be able to do the exercise at the same time some rewards will be provided to them for the physical work they have done. This reward was mainly in the form of entertainment, for which we created a character that dances whenever someone performs the exercise. This motivated the kids to do more exercise and to recover faster. The physician also reported that the device helped the kids in exercise.
