Exoskeleton for upper limb rehabilitation using smart control and virtual reality

Project Details


There are different health problems that produce motor impairment in people generating some disability. More than a billion people around the world live with some form of disability, of which 200 million experience significant difficulties in functioning of the body and day-to-day performance. In Colombia, the problem of disability is a very important element that must be mitigated to increase the quality of life of the population and, in addition to its diagnosis, early treatment is required. Unfortunately, rehabilitation treatments are expensive and additionally require interdisciplinary treatments for the patient and families. Reducing the cost of such rehabilitation treatments is a window of opportunity for patients and their families. Motor disabilities of the upper limb can come from various sources, whether they are birth pathologies, progressive diseases or accidents. A sector of the population that is very vulnerable and susceptible is the child population. Not only diagnosis but therapeutic care require an advanced level of science and technology. The important impact it has on the development of a country, the work on the quality of life of early childhood and the guarantee of their health conditions is obvious.


Develop and implement a framework for pediatric rehabilitation of neurological diseases of the upper limb, based on intelligent adaptive control systems and virtual reality through fused algorithms of emotion recognition and haptic feedback.
