Introducing an innovative solution in the realm of assistive technology, our project utilizes two EMG (Electromyography) sensors placed on the user's facial cheeks to detect movements. This groundbreaking approach allows users to control a robotic hand with just subtle cheek movements, offering a new level of independence for individuals with limited mobility.

Our device harnesses the power of the Arduino platform, known for its affordability and versatility. This choice ensures that the project remains cost-effective, making advanced assistive technology accessible to a wider audience without compromising on quality or functionality.

Significantly, this project marks one of our first forays into assistive technology, developed back in 2018. It stands as a testament to our commitment to innovation and our ongoing journey in the field. The creation of this EMG-based control system not only showcased our dedication to making a difference in the lives of those with mobility challenges but also set the stage for future advancements in assistive devices.

The simplicity and effectiveness of using EMG sensors for cheek movement detection have been key factors in the project's success. By translating these movements into commands for a robotic hand, we've opened up new possibilities for users to interact with their environment in a meaningful way.

This project is more than just a piece of technology; it's a reflection of our belief in the power of innovation to create a more inclusive world. As we continue to explore and develop new assistive technologies, we remain inspired by the potential to transform lives through ingenuity and dedication.
