    This paper presents a new rehabilitation system that is able to adapt its performance to patient's psychophysiological state during the execution of robotic rehabilitation tasks. Using this approach, the motivation and ...
  • A new relational geometric feature for human action recognition 

    Vinagre Ruiz, Manuel; Aranda López, Juan; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (Springer, 2015-01)
    Article

    Robotic rehabilitation is an emerging technology in the field of Neurorehabilitation, which aims to achieve an effective patient recovery. This research focusses on the control strategy for an assistive exoskeleton aiming ...
  • Synergy analysis as a tool to design and assess an effective stroke rehabilitation 

    Urra, Oiane; Casals Gelpi, Alicia; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The poor rehabilitation success rate, including the cases of ineffective and detrimental adaptations, make stroke a leading cause of disability. Thus, it is essential to recognize the mechanisms driving healthy motor ...
  • Study of synergy patterns during the execution of stroke rehabilitation exercises 

    Urra, Oiane; Casals Gelpi, Alicia; Jané Campos, Raimon (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Stroke is a leading cause of disability, being motor impairments its major consequence. Despite rehabilitation, more than 60% of the patients report upper-limb motor dysfunction. The design of novel rehabilitation strategies ...
  • The visual flow and the interaction with computers 

    Muñoz Morgado, Luis Miguel (2015-03-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    Humans have a limitation in the information flow that can process. This article sumarizes the main biological sources of this limitation and make some reflexions over the impact on the interaction with computers in order ...
  • Evaluating spatial characteristics of upper-limb movements from EMG signals 

    Urra, Oiane; Casals Gelpi, Alicia; Jané Campos, Raimon (Springer, 2014)
    Part of book or chapter of book

    Stroke is a major cause of disability, usually causing hemiplegic damage on the motor abilities of the patient. Stroke rehabilitation seeks restoring normal motion on the affected limb. However, ‘normality’ of movements ...
  • Toward new controller design paradigms in networked control systems 

    Torres Guerrero, Gina; Velasco García, Manel; Martí Colom, Pau; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    One of the main concerns in the design of networked control systems (NCS’s) is the inherent delays induced by the networking infrastructure. Rather than considering delays as a threat, delays may be considered as an ...
  • Internet-based control of a ball-and-plate system: a case study of modeling and automatic code generation for networked control systems 

    Torres Guerrero, Gina; Martín Rull, Enric Xavier; Velasco García, Manel; Martí Colom, Pau; Camacho, Antonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The evolution of technology and application needs leads to design complex systems both at hardware and software levels. Modeling approaches and automatic code generation are mature techniques in several application areas ...
