Rehabilitation Robotics

Leveraging on the more fundamentally oriented projects above, this project focuses on the study of robotics technology in the clinical rehabilitation of people with motion impairment, such as in post-stroke patients.

This project is conducted in collaboration with Professor Mary Galea. This is an interdisciplinary project, covering various engineering sub-topics as well as clinical and communication topics. One of the sub-projects was funded by the Institute of Broadband Enabled Society (IBES) in 2010, studying the effect of network latency in the engineering systems and the clinical communication.

Goals

Goals of the project includes:

  • Study the automation of rehabiliation services
  • Adapt modern control techniques to optimize rehabilitation services
