Have you sometimes felt some pains in your wrist? Be careful, because you might get a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) disorder. So what is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a disorder that affects your nerves in the wrist. This disorder makes your nervus medianus compressed when the nerve passes through the tunnel in your wrist (called carpal tunnel, that's why this disorder is called carpal tunnel syndrome).That's why we were inspired to make Attracts, Automatic Treatment for Hand Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Attracts uses Teensy 3.1 as a board. At the first time, we use ATMEGA2560. At that time we created the first prototype with SMD component and it used 0.96" OLED Display. But at that time, it did not work. So next we moved to Arduino Pro mini. It was cool. But the only bad thing is about the speed. It was too slow because our data of exercise and treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome need to be as fast as possible. So then we choose Teensy 3.1 because not only it has a lots of memories besides it has higher clock (Overclock up to 96 MHz !!!). And next we change the LCD display from OLED Display into TFT Display because the screen resolution is better than OLED, besides it is Colorful. we give our smartwatch a lipo charger and lipo battery 3.7V 1000 mAH. And the last thing, we add a Bluesmirf HID Module that we bought from Sparkfun into our smartwatch because we think it will be cool if you have a watch that can be a mouse or a keyboard and you just control it by using your hand and muscle movements. Besides, it can be an exercise of the patient of CTS or non-CTS because you have to move your hand in order to control your computer.
