iDuctal, an application to visualize breast cancer with ultrasound images


Breast cancer is the most common malignant tumor among women worldwide. Breast cancer is one of the few cancers that can be early detected, and the survival rate of the women whose breast cancers are detected on their initial stage is virtually 100%. At the present time, ultrasound (US) is the most important imaging test together with the mammogram for the diagnostic evaluation of the breast.

iDuctal is an innovative technique for the intraglandular mapping of breast cancer in a 3D scene using US images.

iDuctal has been commercially transferred to Instead-Technologies, Ltd.

[Hermes] Hyper-flexible bimanual robot manipulation and packing of deformable parts in the footwear industry

The HERMES experiment is part of a Echord experiments. It will demonstrate the potential to apply robotic technologies in the packaging process of the high added value shoe production. Important key technologies for bimanual manipulation, specifically in terms of detection and manipulation of non-rigid parts, will be developed and transferred to potential system integrators for future commercialization.

PUPArm- Proof of Concept


The main objective of this project is to analyse the outcome of the robot-assisted rehabilitation therapy in at least 30 sub-acute and chronic stroke patients, randomly assigned to 2 different experimental groups:

Control group: this group, composed by at least 15 patients, will receive three months of standard rehabilitation therapy, according to rehabilitation protocols defined by clinical experts.

Robot-aided rehabilitation group: this group, composed by at least 15 patients, will receive three months of robot-aided rehabilitation therapy, according to rehabilitation protocols defined by clinical experts.

The aim of these experiments is to provide the “proof of concept” of the PUParm robot to be a technological system, capable of delivering rehabilitation therapy, tailored on the specific needs of the single patient.

Financial Entity: Universidad Miguel Hernández

Researchers: Nicolas Garcia Aracil, Eduardo Fernandez Jover, Maria Dolores Garcia, Daniel Tornero, ….

[HUMBIOS] Interpretation of the human intention and performance through biomedical signals and analysis of kinematic and dynamic motion

This project focuses on the work of interpreting the information provided by the user (surgeon in the surgical environment and patient / therapist in rehabilitation setting.) The main work of this subproject is based on:

a)  The interpretation of kinematic and dynamic information of the human intention and performance. To accomplish this goal, software modules will be developed to extend the features of already known packages as OpenSim from These studies are directly applicable to other sub-projects that participate in this request.

Les technologies de l’information et de la communication connaissant une rapide évolution en matière d’innovation, cela pourrait nous amener à court terme à une « démocratisation des TICs.

Le laboratoire IpsiLab de l’Ecole Normale Supérieure De l’enseignement Technologique d’Oran, avec et le Departamento de Ingeniería de Sistemas y Automatica de l’Université d’ELCHE organisent en étroite collaboration un séminaire à l’intention des enseignants et post graduants, et leurs homologues des autres pays dans le domaine des TICs. Ce séminaire se déroulera dans le cadre de relations de coopération dans le domaine de la recherche pour assurer une formation continue des professeurs et des enseignants et ceux de l’arc sud méditerranéen.

Une part importante est réservée à la présentation des travaux des post-graduants et autres doctorants.
