Intro: TENS MDDS Feedback Device
Mal De Debarquement Syndrome is a rare and not well understood medical condition where it seems your brain thinks you are moving when you are not, and vice-versa.
NOTE: This instructable is for a device in development. I will keep updating it until the device is successfully field-tested
This is a device I am creating for a friend of mine that might help in cases where he is walking, but his brain does not think he is.
Step 1: Equipment
You will need:
TENS device - I searched online and got the one in the picture (of case)
Pressure switches - At least 2. Again I searched online.
Wiring and soldering supplies
Step 2: Wiring
- Cut one of the wires to a TENS pad.
- Solder it to a female connector
- Solder a wire to a pressure switch terminal, and the other end to a male connector
Repeat the steps above for the other TENS pad and pressure switch.
Sew the pressure switches into the heels of a pair of socks. Connecting it all up, applying the pad to a suitable place on your body and switching on the TENS device should generate a signals when you walk.
