Hub for the development of technological innovation projects in neuromuscular diseases
Increase the normal offer of orthoses and adaptive technologies in order to improve their function, quality, comfort, aesthetic impact, hygienic management, cost and accessibility
Increase the normal offer of aids and adaptive technologies in order to improve their function, quality, comfort, aesthetic impact, the reduction of complications secondary to immobility, hygienic management, cost and accessibility.
SHIL will represent the operational area within NEMO LAB with the aim of carrying out R&D projects concerning “Internet of Things” applied to the management and management of highly complex patients, such as patients with neuromuscular diseases.
Provide consultancy activities on orientation actions for independent living. To develop and improve home accessibility projects specifically intended for people with neuromuscular pathologies. To design home environmental changes.
Improve and develop immersive and virtual reality technologies for rehabilitation in neuromuscular patients. To improve and develop exergaming technologies to make fun and increase participation and interest in rehabilitation treatments in neuromuscular diseases at the patient’s home.
Design and test movement analysis systems (walking, facial mimicry, manual skills and breathing) and posture. To design and develop medical IT systems to support clinical and research activities. To develop bioelectric signal analysis methodologies.
Improve and develop assistive robotic technologies to support the neuromuscular patient in moving skills (in standing or sitting position).
Develop and improve voice analysis systems for the study of voice alterations in the context of various neuromuscular diseases.
Create a database of voice messages (message banking) obtained from both patients and healthy donors.
Develop new neurorehabilitative approaches for alternative augmentative communication (CAA). To improve and develop technologies for AAC based on eye-tracker (ETI) and brain-computer (BCI) systems to support communication and the daily life activities.
Design, prototyping, and R&D of tunable polymers and biomaterials for the manufacturing of custom-made and minimally invasive orthosis, prosthesis, and daily live aids, using Fused Deposition Modeling
