    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
    Open Access
    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 ...
