Robotic exoskeleton: Functional electrical stimulation
ISMORE is an intracranial system for motor rehabilitation of paretic arms in patients affected by paralysis after a stroke, including those patients who are completely paralysed.
The system makes it possible to reconnect brain and muscles through neurotechnology, providing rehabilitative therapy that recovers motor function.
The incidence and prevalence of stroke in Europe is 1.1 and 6 million people, respectively, and is growing annually by 10%.
So far, there is no standardised rehabilitation therapy for completely paralysed patients after stroke (30%) who have no residual movement.
In certain cases, patients are subjected to passive physical therapy without any functional benefit and in very few cases the patient's spasticity and blood circulation are improved.
