Clinical tests indicate positive results from new exoskeletons for motor-impaired persons
Research projects about Prostheses
The Brain Bow project focuses on the development of innovative neuroprostheses. The main goal is to restore neuronal connections and activity among in-vitro neurons by connecting them to an artificial system. This technique may be used in the future to treat the consequences of damages to the brain tissues caused by accidents or strokes.
The goal of the Symbitron project is the development of personalized wearable exoskeleton for motor-impaired people. These complement the patient’s remaining motor functions to let people walk without further assistance. The project also designs training environments and protocols for patients and their doctors.
