Abstract : Rehabilitation engineering is the application of en gineering sciences and technology to improve the quality of life for the people with disabilitie s. A device is designed for the visually challenged people to aid them in operating the home appliances individually. A Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) accelerometer is used to sense the accelerations of a hand in motion in three perpendicular directions th at is (x,y,z) and transmitted to wireless protocol using Radio Frequency (RF). The RF signals transmission frequency is 2.25 GHz. The gesture code templates are already stored in the mi crocontroller at the receiver section. The received gestures and the hand gesture shown by the visually challenged is recognized and compared with the templates stored in the receiver. If the templates match the stored templates,then accordingly the home appliances are controlled .
