The young age of those mostly involved (on ave...

Focus on

Project Objectives The introduction of robotic technologies in rehabilitation is very interesting, especially from the point of view of learning/relearning and the improvement of therapeutic efficiency. However, robot-aided rehabilitation for both upper and lower limb still has not reached the same therapeutic results of conventional therapy. Generally, recovery is related to an improvement in mo...
WI-MYOHAND “Optimized implantable system for interfacing with the peripheral nervous system and control of upper limb prosthesis” Project objectives The project has the important goal of developing and testing an upper limb prosthetic system consisting of an implantable sensory feedback system capable of allowing a more intuitive and selective control of the prosthetic limb. In p...
SOMA “Ultrasound peripheral interface and in-vitro model of human somatosensory system and muscles for motor decoding and restoration of somatic sensations in amputees”  Project objectives The SOMA project has the ambition to importantly advance the field of upper-limb prostheses by investigating Ultra Sound solution as a completely novel low-invasive bidirectional periphera...
