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.
23.12.2020. At IUVO labs, the R&D team is working on the design and development of a fully portable and extremely lightweight shoulder-elbow exoskeleton to support the upper limb movements in post-stroke patients with mild to moderate hemiparesis.
30.11.2020. The ReHyb project aims at providing solutions that can assist in rehabilition of upper limbs and to provide assistance in ADL to persons that have finished rehabilitation.
27.10.2020. Imperial College London, European Neurosciences Center / Centro Europeo de Neurociencias (CEN) and the University of Toronto have created an intercontinental partnership to study the clinical applications of fully integrated wearable exoskeletons.
16.09.2020. The Munich local newspaper “Hallo München” has published an interview with Prof. Sandra Hirche in their Health series entitled: State-of-the-art medical technology in Munich: TUM is conducting research on intelligent exoskeletons for stroke patients.
28.08.2020. For several years Schoen Clinic Bad Aibling has offered robotic treatment in combination with serious gaming, and functional electrical stimulation as part of their standard neurorehabilitation treatment. Since the implementation of the first device in our hospital, the effects of these specific therapies have been investigated to support evidence based medicine.
