Once the companion robot was assembled i had the idea of adding a touch feedback element. this low cost solution allows patients to rub their finger against two different grains of sand paper and monitor how this feeling can change over time. Loss of sensation can be an early indicator of a MS episode and this low cost solution provides some feedback on how this changes.
