Özet

During the lifetime, one of the most involuntary or voluntary movements of the human body is blinking eyes. The main purpose of ongoing scientific researches is to obtain a meaningful and fundamental data by observing eye blink movement, which might give some valuable information for other research subjects. Eye blink data is being frequently analyzed and processed for different application fields such as wearable technologies, intelligent driver warning systems, etc. In this study, eye blink data is obtained as biomechanical outcome for application of biomedical purposes in treatment of diseases caused by eye blink complications. The motivation of the study is based on facial paralysis disease, which may be resulted in eye blink difficulty especially in one eye. The proposed treatment system operates by triggering eyelid muscles by an appropriate synchronizing data obtained by healthy eye blink movements. The synchronizing data is acquired by using QRD1114 sensor module which contains IR led and fototransistor. The proposed system with its ergonomic structure does not block the angle of vision.
