Robot assisted rehabilitation
Within the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF, funded project inRehaRob a consortium of research institutions, industry and rehabilitation centers aim to develop a rehabilitation robot which facilitates individualized rehabilitation performed autonomously by the patient.
Development and evaluation of orthoses
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF, funded project smartMove aims to develop a smart orthotic device to improve movement capacity of patients suffering from spasticity. This project is carried out in close collaboration with our project partners in Mexico. Furthermore, both movement analysis and surface electromyography are being used to provide evidence regarding the medical evaluation of orthoses.
Individualized, technically assisted rehabilitation at home
The success of the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal function is related to performance quality, the amount and the consistency of physiotherapeutic training. This implies that the exercises must be done extramurally. Simple and easy to use devices for autonomous, extramural rehabilitation are being developed which give guidance and control to the patients.
