NEUROEXOS is an elbow exoskeleton developed by Scuola Supereriore Sant'Anna (Pisa, Italy)
which implements a 4-DOF passive mechanism to allign the rotation axes of human and robot joints.
It has been recently presented to Ability Channel, a web TV that is especially dedicated
to sport events for people with disabilities. Watch the video
HANDEXOS is an exoskeletal device for hand rehabilitation and/or functional assistance.
It has been designed for ensure high comfort and address full kinematics compatibility
with human hand. Watch the video to see how it works
The SSSA is the project coordinator; it is mainly responsible for the development of
the CYBERLEGs orthosis, the integration of the CYBERLEGs system and the project
UCL is responsible for the development of the CYBERLEGs control system based on
the use of motor primitives. UCL will cover the development of the primitive-based
controller, and related experimental activities.
VUB is the responsible partner for the development of the CYBERLEGs prosthesis
module and for conducting the CYBERLEGs validation. It will play a crucial role in
addressing the scientific challenge of developing an actuation system which is
energetically efficient for both CYBERLEGs prosthesis and orthosis.
UL will be responsible of developing the cognitive module for amputee motor
intention detection. UL will develop a part of the sensory system and the integration
of the entire sensory system. It will also lead and perform experiments on healthy
subjects to collect initial data on which basing the development of the multi-sensory
FDG will be responsible of conducting experiments within WP5 (Multi-sensory fusion and
bi-directional human-robot interface) and will be involved in the implementation of the final primitive-based controller of the whole CYBERLEGs robot. FDG will be also involved in the final validation trials with amputees aimed at assessing the performance of the CYBERLEGs system.
