Itch Detection Research


I worked in a research project with a dermatologists in finding non-intrusive way to ease itch problems. As part of the projects, we want to detect scratching events (e.g. when a patient scratch). Able to detect this kind of events is vital in researching possible solutions.

For this project, I use the MYO armband which can capture readings regarding arm movement. and we developed a custom deep learning models to detect and classify events based on the captured signals.
