Bioengineering applied to personal autonomy
Rehabilitation Assisted Robots and Motion analysis laboratory
- The objective of quantitative movement analysis provide high resolution tools to assess the impact of rehabilitation interventions, contribute to the research of physiopathological mechanisms, as well as to enhance the collaboration with technological partners to define user requirements promoting bottom-up research from the real needs of neurorehabilitation.
The laboratory is equipped with the integral “BTS bioengineering” system that allows a complete motion analysis including kinematic (angular and temporospatial parameters), kinetic (force, power) and dynamic electromyography data as well as video recording to help the clinical interpretation of the results.
The gait computerized analysis, the balance assessment and complex upper extremity task evaluation contribute to the improvement of the movement assessment with quantitative and objective data, the interpretation of the results and allow the clinicians to measure the impairment and its progress.
