The aim of Assist Control project is to deploy new control strategies for gait assistance using the Exo-H3 Eurobench lower limb exoskeleton and assess its performance. At least, the consortium proposes to deploy two control strategies for gait assistance, autonomous walking and rehabilitation. These controllers are previously validated through dynamic modeling simulation of the exoskeleton-human system; the collected data and the reports of obtained results from the tests are delivered and made available to enrich the Eurobench databases.

SALOEXO wants to propose ad-hoc quantitative indicators, protocols and sensors to monitor and verify the safe operation of exoskeletons in realistic dynamic tasks. This approach, validated in two locomotion conditions (treadmill and irregular terrain) will enable companies, researchers and endusers to collect safety-related data during the real use of the device. This approach will permit to: (1) improve the accuracy and credibility of risk assessment procedures, (2) implement online monitoring tools to avoid hazardous events, and (3) plan more concrete mitigation strategies for unavoidable hazards.

EXTEND aims at developing the novel concept of Bidirectional Hyper-Connected Neural Systems (BHNS) to extend the capabilities of neural interfaces with minimally invasive communication links between multiple nerves in the body and multiple external devices. EXTEND will realise BHNS by developing disruptive wireless neuromuscular (injectable) interface technology that enables distributed stimulation, sensing, processing and analysis of neuromuscular activity, the ultimate stance of the neural code of movement.

ColRobot combines cutting-edge European robot technology and end-user requirements for assembly processes to create an integrated system for collaborative robotics in which a mobile manipulator acts as a “third hand” by delivering kits, tools, parts, and holding work pieces while the operator works on it. Humans will cognitively and physically interact with ColRobot robots using gestures, touch commands and demonstrations.

The major drawbacks of existing walking bipeds are related to stability, energy consumption, and robustness to unknown disturbances. The goal of H2R project is to demonstrate human-like gait and posture in a controlled compliant biped robot as a result of a combination of the most relevant motor control and cognitive mechanisms found in humans.

Augmented BNCI Communication
Dates: From 2011-11-01 to 2015-04-15
ABC project has developed new ways of communication for children with diskinetic cerebral palsy. The core outcome of the project is a communicator integrating health and emotion capabilities with an open interface which can be controlled by different in approaches. Among the different input devices tested within the framework of the project, the following ones deserves to be mention: BCI paradigms, EMG signal and head posture measured with IMUs.

TRAM Project (ES)
Motor Tele Rehabilitación Audiovisual
TRAM Project is an experimental development that seeks for the development of a software solution able to manage the rehabilitaiton of patients with any kind of motor dysfunction and able to monitorize the patient’s condition and evolution at home as well as at the Hospital’s facilities
The main goal of BETTER is to improve physical rehabilitation therapies of gait disorders in stroke patients based on BNCI assistive technologies, producing improved systems, providing guidelines for improving future systems, and developing benchmarking and evaluation tools. The project will validate, technically, functionally and clinically, the concept of improving stroke rehabilitation with wearable exoskeletons and robotic gait trainers based on a TOP-DOWN approach. FP7-2009-7.2 – STREP – Contract Number: 247935
The main objective of the project is to validate, technically, functionally and clinically, the concept of mechanically suppressing tremor through selective Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) based on a (Brain-to-Computer Interaction) BCI-driven detection of involuntary (tremor) motor activity. TREMOR proposes a multimodal BCI in which the main goal is identifying, characterizing and tracking involuntary motor bioelectrical activity as a command to trigger a biomechanical suppression of tremor.
