REHYB@ÖSSUR: Sustainable development

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.

REHYB@STELAR: The Future of Privacy – Predictions and Challenges 

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.

REHYB@SSSA: The certification process toward clinical trials

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.

REHYB@RU: Adaptive AI-based coaching for personalized interventions after stroke

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.

REHYB@SK: Workshop on electrode design with occupational and physical therapists

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.

REHYB@TUM: Partner departure and new addition to the ReHyb project team

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

REHYB@VALDUCE: Users evaluation on patient dashboard interface

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.
