Transcript of Lego Robotics 2012 research project

In order to help people with knee problems
be able to get into cars easily, we came up with a swivel seat for your car:
It...
Helps you get in and out of the car easily
Eliminates all knee pain
Locks into place when you drive
Very little movement necessary The knee is the biggest joint
One third of every American over 45 will have a knee problem
Problems
Start with developing muscles poorly
Inadequate stretching
Usually start at age 50 THE KNEES Osteoarthritis is a usual consequence of aging. 'wear and tear' taking place on a joint.

•The cartilage is the secure, elastic tissue
•Bones rub against one another.
Agony
•Bony spurs or extra bone
Reason of OA is unknown.
Linked to aging.
Middle age.
Minor symptoms by age 70. Tendinitis
Inflammation
Upper and lower limbs
Severity of the injury is based on the use
Pain
Swelling RA
Tender, warm, and swollen.
Hurts more

Tiny pouch called synovium.
Cartilage is a material that protects bones. Makes bones stable
Don’t rub

Conceals a liquid.
Keeps the joints “oiled”.
Inflammation Most common causes
Dull tooth ache pain
Occasionally sharp
Pain is usually located over your joint line
Swelling
The pain feels worse when you get out of a chair or car, or when you have had prolonged walking or standing.
Grinding in the knee.
rest, heat, wrapping the knee, and pain medication. Arthritis Arthritis a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. Rheumatoid arthritis of the knee causes the joints to become tender, warm, and swollen. Although knee osteoarthritis causes pain and stiffness, joint pain with knee RA is more severe.

Normally, a small pouch covered with a thin tissue called synovium lies between the two pieces of joint cartilage. Cartilage is a material that covers the ends of joint bones. Cartilage helps to keep bones from rubbing against each other during movement.

The synovium secretes a liquid. This liquid helps keep joints lubricated. When joints are well lubricated, they move smoothly and painlessly. Inflammation of the synovium leads to damage and permanent destruction of the joint.

NEED TO EDIT This is one of the most common causes of pain in the knee. In fact, if you are over the age of 65 one in two of you have arthritis with the knee been one of the most common joints involved.

The pain of arthritis is usually a dull tooth ache pain that is occasionally sharp with sudden movements. The pain is usually located over your joint line (where the tibia meets the femur) and in the front of the knee. Mild and sometimes severe swelling is associated with this pain. The pain is worse when you exit a chair or car. It is also worse with any prolonged walking or standing. The pain is usually better with rest, heat (sometimes ice), wrapping the knee and pain medication.

Occasionally the knee may catch on the rough uneven surfaces of your cartilage. Patients often complain of grinding in the knee, and occassional popping.

NEED TO EDIT Knee Problem: Arthritis Osteoarthritis is a usual consequence of aging. It’s also produced through 'wear and tear' taking place on a joint.

•The cartilage is the secure, elastic tissue that pads your bones at the joints, and also allows bones to glide over one another.
•If the cartilage degrades down and wears away, the bones rub against one another. This causes agony, inflammation, and stiffness.
•Bony spurs or extra bone may form around the joint. The ligaments and muscles around the joint become weaker and stiffer.

Often, the reason of OA is unknown. It is mostly linked to aging.
The symptoms of OA usually appear in middle age. Almost everyone has some symptoms by age 70. However, these symptoms may be minor.

NEED TO EDIT Knee Problem: Arthritis Problem People with knee problems are physically challenged
when climbing stairs. We want to come up with a solution for this, so that people with arthritis can be able to walk up stairs easier. Our Solution SOLUTIONS LIKE OURS!!! The Swivel Chair This is a solution that is similar to ours. We discussed this solution with our senor partner. She said that she tried this before, but it doesn't swivel very well.
