15.09.2023. In this post we will share some general thoughts on what needs to be considered when introducing sustainability into development process. One of the UN sustainable development goals is “Responsible Consumption and Production “(goal #12). For designers and manufacturers, this means trying to meet this goal through smart design using methods and materials that have a low environmental footprint.
13.09.2023. We are thrilled to bring you some important news regarding the REHYB project. The European Union has officially accepted our request for an extension amendment. This is a testament …
04.09.2023. In the rapidly evolving digital age, dealing with advancements in technology especially in the health sector, and personal data privacy is becoming increasingly complicated. As encryption technologies and data protection technologies and decentralized data systems advance, this can give users more control over their information.
02.08.2023. In the ReHyb project, the Human Robotics Group at ICL aims at understanding the underlying mechanism of combined FES and robot assistance and how they affect motor and physiological behaviours in stroke patients.
23.06.2023. Many challenges have to be faced to develop a robotic rehabilitation device and a crucial point in the roadmap toward clinical testing of a new prototype is compliance with the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR), which is always up to date to provide improvements toward conformity assessment of new prototypes and products.
15.06.2023. Recent technological advancements have led to the development of various innovative solutions for neurorehabilitation, among which the combination of wearable exoskeletons and virtual reality-based exercises has emerged as a promising approach. However, a notable limitation in the field lies in the inadequate integration and coordination of different modules within virtual reality-robotic synergistic rehabilitative systems, primarily due to the absence of effective control architecture.
09.06.2023. Practical operation of devices and equipment plays a crucial role in therapy in the clinical setting. SK welcomed TECNALIA, and TUM, and Valduce (online) for a 1-day hybrid-workshop on the design of the FES electrodes for final adjustments. TECNALIA presented the latest developments on the electrodes that were implemented since the last feedback and try-out sessions.
02.06.2023. The ReHyb project would like to introduce the new project partner Radboud University (RU) joining the consortium. We are thrilled to announce that RU became officially the new partner of ReHyb project on 1st August 2022 and is represented by Donders Institute. RU team joined the project with their great experience in such a field and aim to revolutionize rehabilitation technology
22.02.2023. VALDUCE and DTU have established a focused collaboration to conduct tests with stroke patients at VALDUCE in order to have a user evaluation regarding the patient version of the dashboard DTU is developing for Rehyb system. The goal of this activity was to deliver the best experience to stroke patients during the use of the dashboard to keep their motivation high and promote progression throughout their rehabilitation journey.
10.02.2023. DTU’s researchers continue proliferating their knowledge and expertise gained through the ReHyb project with other European research institutions. On the 31st of January, DTU was hosted by Elin Anna Topp and the Robotics and Semantic Systems research group in the Department of Computer Science, Lund University, for a research seminar.
