Research Area

  • Title:
    Rehabilitation Engineering, Biorobotics & Assistive technologies

  • Keywords:

    Myoelectric control, wearable technology, human-machine interfaces, assistive devices

  • Description:

    An objective quantification of motor abilities, poorly relaying on the subjective experience of even expert clinician, can nowadays be achieved through the analysis of a great amount of information which can be drawn from many different kinds of devices from wearable to more classical technology. The kinetics and kinesiological information can be used to describe the motor function and support the planning of subject-specific rehabilitative paths. In this domain, the aforementioned methodologies can be aimed for supporting the human-human interaction or refining the human-machine interaction. Focus is the understanding of the control mechanisms able to produce motor commands in order to drive the reinforcement of the residual functionalities or to recover lost motor abilities.
