A couple of months ago I get a visit in the FabLab. It was Augusto Weber, inviting me to take place in his PhD research's experiment.
A couple of months ago met Augusto Weber in the FabLab. He was looking for someone who could help him with his PhD research.
**"Effects of Music in Combination with Vibration in Acupuncture Points on the Treatment of Fibromyalgia".**
We immediately realised our mutual interest in topics such as music, technology applied to Science, Chinese Medicine and more.
He told me a little about his topic and that he needed help with the electronic aspect of his research.
Since I am also very interested in topics such as music, technology applied to Science, Chinese Medicine, I decided to help him in this endeavour.
Step number one is to reconstruct the transducers done for his frequency generator machine. And this is what I'll mainly cover in this page.
== **A transducer is a device that converts energy from one form to another. Usually a transducer converts a signal in one form of energy to a signal in another.** ==
###Where to start?
After some research and having in mind Niel's encouraging words to make coils/Solenoinds ourselves, I came up with a plan.
Well, a coil is basically a wire in a loop. The current passing the loop generates a magnetic field perpendicular to the direction of the current. See [Right Hand Palm Rule](https://i0.wp.com/4.bp.blogspot.com/-15p1JFHnI2Y/V4CHANvY3XI/AAAAAAAAAq4/Givz8NnAnJwHvc2ft7cHzxkhkvrCGf_ewCLcB/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2016-07-09%2Bat%2B10.38.08%2Bam.png?ssl=1).
I would then 3D print a structure to contain the insulated copper wire and leave a slit for the magnet in the structure's core.
The idea is that, once current starts to oscillate through the copper wire, the magnetic field generated will carry the magnet, generating the desired vibrations.
The first result:

Not bad, right?!
And this is how I coiled it:
When I explained to Augusto about the sort of work done in a FabLab and showed him some of my electronic projects, it was when he told me that he was looking for someone with my expertise.
