21.09.2021 In the ReHyb project, the Human Robotics Group at ICL aims at modelling the hand neuromechanics of stroke patients and their internal states that are not directly observable. These models will then be used to inform the control algorithm of the hybrid prosthesis to provide a personalized and adaptive assistance during activities of daily living and rehabilitative training.
14.09.2021 Big data has changed the way we manage and analyze data in the healthcare industry. Using modern big data techniques can lead to better patient care, an improvement of the quality of life of patients, offer better predictions for difficult to diagnose diseases, and more. For such solutions to work, however, sensitive patient data often need to be collected and analyzed.
29.07.2021 With years of experience in scientifically exploring and evaluating device-based therapies, the role of Schoen Clinic Bad Aibling – Harthausen in the ReHyb project is to accompany and evaluate the technical integration of the ReHyb system from a user perspective. Such a user-centered approach is repeatedly said to be important for successful rehabilitation and targets to include the opinions and needs of patients.
30.06.2021 At the Wearable Robotics Lab of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA), we are working on the design and development of the powered exoskeletons for the ReHyb project. The combination of a shoulder-elbow- and a hand-wrist exoskeleton (namely ReHyb-HP and ReHyb-Hand) will allow patients with moderate to severe upper-limb movement limitations to carry out rehabilitation treatments in clinic, receiving adaptive support for functional mobilization of the arm and assistance in grasping tasks.
31.05.2021. In the ReHyb project TECNALIA focuses on development and integration of multichannel Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) and Electromyography (EMG) technologies into the ReHyb exoskeleton systems. We are developing a new, distributed wrist and hand neuroprosthesis that synergistically works together with a wearable exoskeleton.
23.04.2021. The SPECS Lab at IBEC has identified, for the first time in humans, the physiological mechanism responsible for effective learning processes based on self-motivation and freedom of choice.
25.03.2021 Technical University of Denmark has the responsibility for designing the interfaces between the human stroke patient and the computers and robotics that form the hybrid exoskeletal neuroprosthesis. To understand the interactions between the patients and technology, a master candidate, Barnabás Homola, developed an upper-limb exoskeleton prototype utilizing Lego Technic components.
6.03.2021. Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a treatment that artificially activates muscles during exercise and activity for patients with motor disabilities. This is achieved by placing electrodes on the skin’s surface and transmitting low-energy electrical pulses through the body to induce muscle contraction in the stimulated limbs.
31.01.2021. The Villa Beretta Rehabilitation Centre, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine of VALDUCE Hospital, is equipped with high technological devices for evaluation of patients’ functions as well as for customized rehabilitation treatments.
19.01.2020. The ReHyb project aims at developing a digital twin respecting Ethics and Data Protection.
