VIRTUAL SENSORS FOR ANOMALY DETECTIONS IN PEOPLE WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

  • Lead researcher: Asier Zubizarreta Picó - (01/09/2021 - 31/08/2024)
  • Funding body: Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (Proyectos de I+D+i, Reto

The main challenge of this approach is to characterize the state of the patient in a given time, so that the Virtual Sensor is able to detect slight variations in this state. The final goal is to provide therapists with information that allows them to adapt easily the rehabilitation therapies, so that their efficiency is maximized, which will impact on the quality of life of patients.

Smart Tip for Gait Functional Diagnosis in Multiple Sclerosis Patients (DPI2017-82694-R)

  • Lead researcher: Asier Zubizarreta Picó - (01/01/2018 - 31/07/2021)
  • Funding body: Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation

This project focuses on the development of an intelligent tip for the monitoring and diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients. The data adquired by this device is intended to be used for diagnosis purposes, offering objective data that can be used to optimize and adapt the rehabilitation therapy to the particular state of each patient, which will lead to the improvement of his/her life quality. MS is one of the neurological diseases with more impact in society (40000 patients in Spain), due to: 1) the average...

Control of Universal Haptic Pantograph (UHP) rehabilitation robot

  • Lead researcher: Asier Zubizarreta Picó - (01/09/2013 - 31/12/2014)
  • Funding body: Euskampus Fundazioa, Neurosciences Area

In the last few decades, robotic devices have been proposed as an alternative to traditional rehabilitation procedures. Longer treatments, repeatability, adaptability, cost-effectiveness and the possibility to analyze the patient progress, are some of their benefits. One of the most important issues in rehabilitation robotics is the design of control approaches for proper and safe user interaction. Thus, the aim of the project is to design and implement a suitable advanced control structure for rehabilitation robots.
