The XoSoft project will develop a modular soft lower-limb exoskeleton to assist people with mobility impairments. The consortium includes 5 research groups and 3 companies each with EU project experience in exoskeleton/assistive orthoics development. XoSoft, a class I medical device, assists people with low to moderate levels of reduced mobility, enabling them to remain active performing tasks of ...

SYMBITRON targets a major technological leap for symbiotic man-machine interactions. In particular, the project results will markedly improve the lives of (partially) paralyzed persons through the development of a superior wearable exoskeleton. Such systems are designed to offer Spinal Cord Injured (SCI) patients the ability to walk and overcome obstacles in their daily life. To date, wearable exo ...

Smart Wearable Robots with Bioinspired Sensory-Motor Skills (BioMot)

Start date: 01 Oct 2013, End date: 30 Sep 2016,

Wearable robots (WR) are person-oriented devices, usually in the form of exoskeletons. These devices are worn by human operators to enhance or support a daily function, such as walking. WRs find applications in the enhancement of intact operators or in clinical environments, e.g. rehabilitation of gait function in neurologically injured patients. Most advanced WRs for human locomotion still fail t ...

Wearable interfaces for hAnd function recoverY (WAY)

Start date: 01 Oct 2011, End date: 31 May 2015,

This project addresses the scientific problem of recovery of hand function after amputation, or neurological disabilities like spinal cord injury, brachial plexus injury, and stroke. It introduces several conceptual novelties which explicitly take into account and overcome the limited band-width in actual Brain-Neural Communication Interfaces (BNCI). WAY demonstrators are able to restore a physiol ...

Tremor is the most common movement disorder and is strongly increasing in incidence and prevalence with ageing. The most frequent types of tremor are those arising from two neurodegenerative disorders: Parkinson's disease and essential tremor. Although not life threatening, upper limb tremors hamper independent life of 65% of those suffering from them, greatly impacting on their quality of life. T ...

Over the last decades, human body metrics have been used to improve human-product interaction. Along this period, the use of 1D-measurements in "classic" ergonomic applications (e.g. workplace design) has been extended to consumer goods industries such as the automotive, apparel, furniture or orthopaedic sectors. New technologies for the gathering, storage and analysis of anthropometric data (i.e. ...

A lack of mobility often leads to limited participation in social life. The purpose of this STREP is to conceive a system empowering lower limbs disabled people with walking abilities that let them perform their usual daily activities in the most autonomous and natural manner. New smart dry EEG bio-sensors will be applied to enable lightweight wearable EEG caps for everyday use. Novel approaches t ...

Cerebral vascular accident (CVA, Stroke) is the most prevalent neurological condition leading to physical impairment in Western society. About 4.7 million stroke survivors are alive today. Impaired walking ability contributes to post-stroke walking disability. Walking incorrectly creates a stigma and makes patients more susceptible to injury, affecting quality of life. Most promising interventions ...

In Iceland there are about 50 firms operating within the plastic industry, but there is no formal educational framework in plastics and therefore no educational opportunities in the field except for an occasional course for workers in the industry. The aim of this project is to establish a formal educational framework in the field of plastics/fibres at FNV in Iceland under guidance from Den Jydske ...
