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.

18 September, 2012a20 September, 2012

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.

[Brain2motion] Exoskeletal – neuroprosthesis hybrid robotic system for the upper limb controlled by a multimodal brain-neural interface

The main goal of BRAIN2MOTION project is to develop a new hybrid ER-MNP for the upper limb interfaced to the users by means of non-invasive multimodal brain-neural computer interfaces (BNCIs). The robotic hybrid system will combine a light and kinematically compatible ER, and a textile-based surface MNP. In this combined ER-MNP, hardware and control strategies will be developed to combine the action of the ER and MNP while preserving motor latent capabilities of the user. A spontaneous non- invasive EEG-based Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) and an electrooculography (EOG) interface will compose the multimodal BNCI. The BCI will differentiate more than three mental tasks. This will be achieved incorporating new adaptive classifiers into the BCI. Learning strategies will be developed in order to improve the performance and versatility of the BCI. Control strategies combining EEG and EOG signals will be developed to control the ER-MNP.

iProstate. 3D rendering tool for localization and staging of prostate cancer

iProstate is a software application (spanish registration nº V-159-11) developed by Nbio and José Luis Ruiz-Cerdá, MD from the Hospital la Fe from Valencia.

iProstate allows the introduction of data from biopsies, PSA and Gleason from a patient and it makes a prediction for the staging and spatial localization of the tumoral tissues.

iProstate also allows the 3D visualization of the tumour. iProstate has several options for making reports for each patient.

MATES – Robotic platform for NOTES/SILS assistance

Minimally invasive surgery has required the acquisition of new skills on the part of surgeons and the creation of new tools, an area in which robotics is an invaluable help. The current trend is towards reducing the number of incisions practiced on the patient to a minimum. SILS (Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery) and NOTES (Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery) techniques have thus emerged, and these require a new generation of robotic tools.
