Abstract

ADHD is one of the neurological disorders among children, adolescents and even in adults. ADHD arises due to brain anatomy and function, genes and heredity, head injury, exposure to alcohol, toxins etc., The symptom includes limited attention, hyperactivity, irritability and persistent repetition of words or actions. The children with ADHD have poor academic performance and less parent- child relationship. ADHD is normally treated by using stimulants, cognition enhancing medications and counselling. The objective of our project is to provide non-invasive therapeutic treatment using a portable device. The portable device consists of pulse sensor, sweat sensor, and accelerometer sensor, the outputs of which will be displayed on the LCD Display. Then the therapy is carried out with the help of vibration motors which will improve blood circulation in body and makes them feel relaxed. Thusour device acts as a supportive therapy which helps in the speedy recovery of ADHD patients with minimum cost and minimum technical knowledge.
