I want to design an artificial leg for disabled people. The idea is design of a Device for patients with problems on one side of the leg from the knee down. This device first detects intent to move through movement of the hip. The knee flexes when it detect force in the ankle foot. Then it decides the type of motion needed for the foot by using force sensors placed on the sole of the healthy foot. These force sensors are placed on three different regions; heel, metatarsal and toe. Using the human gait pattern in relation to force and time. This device can segment the pattern of the person’s gait and analyze the required gait of the disabled ankle-foot so it may assist the patient to move appropriately. This device also assists in telerehabilitation as it records the patients gait data and sends it to a medical professional for efficient follow up and prevention of further injury or fall.
I have little knowledge on where to start and I want to take courses. I know I need mechanical and electrical engineering lessons. However, I don't know which courses to take and where to take them. Any recommendations?
