HEG Activities & Achievements
Phymill project was lead by Ts. Dr. Mohd Azrul Hisham Mohd Adib who was also a lecturer at the Faculty of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering Technology, UMP. PhyMill is an automatic exercise device to train walking movement for patients undergoing rehabilitation treatment. The development of this product was achieved with help and advice from a physiotherapy expert in Kuantan Physical Therapy-Physiotherapy Centre, Mrs. Narimah Daud.
Human Engineering Group (HEG) was invited to exhibit our research products at the ISN INSPIRE 2020, held in the National Sports Institute Malaysia in KL. Among the notable guests was the Minister of Youth and Sports, YB Dato’ Sri Reezal Merican Naina Merican. HEG was represented by Dr. Zulkifli and Dr. Hasnun. The minister visited our booth, where we have showcased some products such as the agility training device, the instrumented insole, among others.
The agility training device was a product funded by UMP under the UMP-Community Technology Solution Platform Grant. This product helps the coach to monitor the agility of a badminton player through the use of ultrasonic sensor and Android app. The device consists of 6 units that communicates via Bluetooth. The aim of this project was to benefit the community, thus 2 units of the device were delivered to badminton school teams in Pekan through Pejabat Pendidikan Daerah (PPD) Pekan.
