Robotic prostheses: what do they actually mean for the patient?

Nathanael Jarrassé‘s interview Prostheses have undergone an accelerated development over the past few years, triggered by, amongst others, the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Indeed, with their share of wounded and amputees, these conflicts will undoubtedly have made a strong contribution to, putting the spotlight on this niche field of research. The technological sophistication of […]

Technology & Healthcare

We will explore the technologies to treat the patients or to help them in their daily lives. We will therefore explore robotic, virtual reality as well as the use of accelerometers and the serious-gaming. In this field, we currently witness the creation of many academic spin-offs but also of pure commercial applications. The aim will […]

Mathematics & Modelling

In this section, we are exploring the usage of mathematics, modelling and “big data” dealing with therapies of and for the movement. Examples: The usage of mathematical equations to optimize the sport results, or in revalidation, or in validating empiric techniques. Modelling to “visualize”: the treatment efficacy, movement adaptations, kinematic, the kinetic and muscle coordination… […]

Physiology in extreme conditions

Even though the interest for the physiology in extreme conditions is not new, we only start to see the benefits it generates on the healthcare. Examples: Brain mechanism when facing the extreme conditions (hypoxia, extreme heat and cold…) The sensorimotor changes when facing these extreme conditions (micro-gravity, extreme efforts…) All these researches may bring new […]
