Non-invasive Rehabilitation and Prosthetics
Upper-limb rehabilitation and prosthetics are paramount applications of the techniques developed in bionics. Since 2006 we focus upon non-invasive human-computer interfaces to aid the disabled regain the lost hand functionality without the stress of surgery, drugs, hospitalisation and so on. In our view, both rehab and prosthetics rely on re-establishing the sensori-motor loop with the missing limb. This includes both ways: feed-forward control by detecting the patient’s will to move and sensorial feedback by transducing digital readings to feelings.
