BME Undergraduates are developing a new therapeutic device for carpal tunnel syndrome. The AUTO-Trac aims to provide users with an effective, easy-to-use, and pleasurable treatment option which alleviates their symptoms and avoids the need for more costly and invasive interventions. The AUTO-Trac is designed to stretch and warm the transverse carpal ligament and associated tendons in the carpal tunnel by applying heat and pressure to the user’s hand. This relieves pressure on the median nerve leading to the relief of symptoms such as numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, and cold sensation.
