Research topic: Motor function and rehabilitation

Research methods: Telemetric electromyography, kinematics analysis using electronic goniometers, accelerometers and 3D motion capture system, other sensors (proximity, force, touch, etc), biofeedback, 3D printing, finite element analysis.

Projects in the lab include:

  1. Quantification and evaluation of the kinematics, kinetics and muscular activity patterns performed during daily activities
  2. Development of monitoring systems that record, analyze and provide feedback regarding the motor function of the patient
  3. Use 3D modeling and biomechanical analysis to design patient-specific static and dynamic braces and orthoses.
