Muscular Dystrophy is a group of disorders in which there is a progressive loss of muscle mass and strength. The most common form, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) tends to affect young males and has no cure. DMD causes a decrease in motor control over time, so those affected with talents in the arts may lose their ability to express themselves in this way. This project creates an assistive aid for those affected with DMD which allows them to play the bass guitar. Using a combination of motors, solenoid plungers, and a micro-controller, the user is able to interface with a tablet and create music.
