Telerehabilitation Robotic Devices
The rehabilitation robotic device for home use is a low cost and portable version with patient monitoring capabilities and artificial intelligent algorithms that allow to adapt therapy to patient needs in real time. In addition, the device has been also designed to support the delivering of therapy at home in an easy and safe way. Usability studies with 18 patient has been performed in two different Spanish public hospitals.
Modular upper-limb robotic exoskeletons including wrist, arm prono-supination and hand. The hand and wrist exoskeleton has been tested with more than 15 patients in two locations:
Cedar Foundation (Charity Institution from Northern Ireland, UK) and Policlinico Universitario Campus Bio-Medico (Private Hospital, Rome, Italy).
Miniaturized optical force sensor architecture directed to prototyping and cost-effective applications, where the actual force requirements are still not well defined or the most suitable commercial technologies would highly increase the cost of the device.
