An IoT Hot Cold Sensation Device

This project is to research and develop a portable hot-cold sensation diagnostic device which will be used to test and record the degree of hot and cold sensation on patient’s limbs. Traditional method uses test tubes filled with warm water or cracked ice and water for testing. Temperature less than 5oC and greater than 45oC elicit painful responses in addition to temperature should be avoided. The proposed device not only integrates the key sensory testing tool, but through its electrical components, it provides method to conduct reproducible tests. It has the potential to be a disruptive technology. With the predicted growth and its potential to standardize neurological examinations and thus revolutionize the clinical industry, the device will become more prevalent in hospitals and private practices. This will help Clinisys further impact the local economy though the creation of employment opportunities, and the development and retention of highly qualified personnel that will ultimately lead to increased investment in Alberta.
