REHYB@STELAR: Privacy by Design and by Default – A brief overview

08.08.2022 The concept of privacy by design requires that privacy should be taken into account during the entire lifetime of a project. From the early design stages to the operation of the system. This means that data protection measures are “baked in” the project and are not an “afterthought”.

REHYB@SSSA: The powered shoulder-elbow exoskeleton NESM-gamma

24.06.2022. Designing a robotic exoskeleton for rehabilitating or assisting human motor functions is a big engineering challenge. Exoskeletons can support complex human movements by providing timely and precise assistive actions according to the user’s intention while preserving the natural movement biomechanics.

REHYB@SK: Stakeholder workshop on User Interface and serious gaming applications

22.04.2022. A successful design of our ReHyb device has to meet the wishes and needs of the patients and adjunct stakeholders. That’s why we emphasize a user-centered approach within the ReHyb project. Being one of the clinical partners in the ReHyb project, Schoen Clinic Bad Aibling-Harthausen (SK) aims to provide the perspective from users and clinical stakeholders such as medical professionals (e.g. medical doctors, therapists), patients in the clinic and at home and their caregivers.

REHYB@DTU: Exploration of VR and AR capabilities for serious game rehabilitation

22.02.2022. Developing new interfaces for rehabilitation requires the exploration of different technology platforms and their potential benefit for the end-user and stakeholders involved in the rehabilitation. Under the ReHyb project, DTU has been investigating virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) as the technological medium to enable end users to conduct rehabilitation at home through serious games which provide a more enjoyable and engaging of format in comparison to conventional rehabilitation.

REHYB@VALDUCE: Second demo session on exoskeletons

13.01.2022. The Villa Beretta Rehabilitation Centre, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine of VALDUCE Hospital, has a long-time experience in the testing of innovative technologies for neuro-motor-cognitive rehabilitation. This is the result of a close interaction and sharing experience among the internal team of Physicians, Physiotherapists and Bioengineers and the technical teams of companies, universities and research institutions with which it cooperates.

Rehyb@ÖSSUR: Intellectual property (IP) considerations

10.11.2021. In a highly innovative project like ReHyb, it is important to manage novel outcomes and secure potential intellectual property (IP). To this end ReHyb has set up an IP Management Plan to systematically assess the knowledge created within the project. This work has already resulted in several outcomes being assessed, some of which have moved to a preparatory phase for patent applications.

ReHyb@ICL: New portable wrist robotic interface

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.

ReHyb@Stelar: ReHyb approach on GDPR compliance

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.
