Abstract

Copious amounts of people around the globe currently suffer from ailments in moving, which range from neurodegenerative diseases to colossal accidents. In this study, oxygenated hemoglobin of the brain is monitored using a functional near infrared spectroscopy coupled with a smart watch to detect kinetic activity. It was seen that as participants flipped their left or right hands, at different speeds, there was a detectable increase in oxygenated hemoglobin in the cerebral motor cortex. These promising results could later be used in the advancement of applications based around telehealthcare and brain-computer interface.
