Plasters are meant to be remove quickly to prevent further pain to patent. Vibration sensors will be used to detect if plasters were removed correctly and efficiently, with the least pain possible (Vibrations made)
Vibration sensor needs to be tested with plasters/bandages to see if it reacts to the vibration of removing the plasters/bandages.
If too much pressure is applied to a wound for too long this also causes more pain. Pressure sensor could be used for when pressure to a wound is applied to a wound and pain is exhibited by a servo shaking to represent the pain the patient is in.
The improvement for this code/circuit would be to add a servo to simulate twitching to represent the pain of the patient.
Wounds are meant to be cleaned from the least messy part of the wound to the most to avoid any contamination or spread of bacteria. Having three photoresistors having to be swiped in the correct direction with a visual aid to say if the student did it correctly could help.
Button lock examples were investigated to help with this code. However, I found that the use of a “switchcase” “if “statements could prove more useful for this sensor.
First Code Attempt (Switch Case):
This code unfortunately didn’t agree with the Arduino circuit. The reason for its failure could be that it was waiting to too many values to become active so stayed in the same state.
Second Code Attempt (“if” Statements):
This code worked compared to the first attempt. Using similar parts of the first code, like the use of “checks”, “true” and using one “switchcase” at the end for the result instead of the entire code.
The main improvement would be to simplify and condense the code as well as adjust the sensitivity of the photoresistors by testing different resistors.
Blood Level Sensor:
Used to detect the level of blood and how much is lost. So using a liquid level sensor we could visualise what percentage of blood (liquid) is in the patient (model)
This code and circuit needs another way to visualise the loss of blood (e.g. LEDs? Sound?). Also, the display needs to be correct as it displays the levels in hundreds of per cent.
