The objective of this event is to have an open discussion on the healthcare robotics technologies
Many companies on the healthcare robotics market struggle with a growing number of regulations and standards. Our aim as DIH-HERO network, is to support small companies on healthcare robotics technologies and accelerate their research and innovation.
Experts in robotics technologies for healthcare, including the ReHyb project partners, will be invited. Additionally, a workshop on systems with human-machine interfaces, interoperability and software development best practices and recommendations will be organized, which includes with interactive activities for the audience.
- Any institution or company interested in healthcare robotics and/or virtual reality applications.
*The event language will be in English.
This workshop has been organized in the context of two European projects: DIH-HERO (Digital Innovation Hubs in Healthcare Robotics) and ReHyb (Rehabilitation Based on Hybrid Neuroprosthesis).
DIH-HERO is an independent platform which connects Digital Innovation Hubs across Europe to create a sustaining network for all those who are active in the healthcare robotics sector. The project consortium consists of 17 core partners spread across 11 pan-European countries. Our primary objective is to accelerate innovation in robotics for healthcare. DIH-HERO especially focuses on supporting small and medium-sized enterprises in maximizing their impact and reducing time-to-market.
The ReHyb European project consortium is developing a hybrid upper-limb exoskeleton that uses its own sensing and novel actuation capabilities for generating the digital twin of the user. The advanced cognitive system will interface the digital twin to plan and control the hybrid exoskeleton so that the control system sympathetically respects user’s neuromechanical and psychological status, and intelligently assists the user’s motion.
The cognitive capability accomplishes the robotic system to predict user behaviour and derive personalised interaction strategies by accessing to the digitised knowledge about the user. The hybrid of powered exoskeleton and FES on the user’s arm and hand allow the assistive interaction at the behavioural and muscle levels, which increases the interaction efficacy by improving the user model and wearability of the system, while an advanced control algorithm ensures all interaction strategies are executed safely and robustly.
DIH-HERO and ReHyb projects have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 825003 and No 871767, respectively.
