Smart wearable Robot System for lower-limb Neural Rehabilitation
Total budget: €165,3k
% Funding: 100%
Total Funding: €165,3k
This project is based on the BioMot FET project (ID: 611695), concluded in 2016 and aimed to obtain robotics behavioural flexibility that could facilitate seamless integration of exoskeletons and users and enhancement of user’s skill acquisition during rehabilitation. SMARTWEARABLE project will aim to develop and experiment a new smart robot system for lower-limb rehabilitation. The solution will be based on a new structure of exoskeleton based on the Exo-H2 rigid actuator (manufacture by Technaid S.L.) adapted to the joint (ankle), an control and monitoring system, and a user interface in the form of a video game, directly communicated with the movements of the user to include rehabilitation exercises and to regulate automatically exoskeleton behaviour to obtain personalized therapies.
TECHNAID S.L., Spain
Technaid is a Spanish company specialized in developing innovative systems, whose main objective is to improve the people’s lives. It has two main branches products, the first based on inertial technology, from motion sensors to complete systems of capture and analysis of human biomechanics, and the second, focused on the development of robotic exoskeletons for the research in mobility rehabilitation and in robotic control applied to human biomechanics.
