Conventional therapies do not provide paralyzed patients with closed-loop sensorimotor integration for motor rehabilitation. Paired associative stimulation (PAS) uses brain-computer interface (BCI) technology to monitor patients' movement imagery in real-time, and utilizes the information to control functional electrical stimulation (FES) and bar feedback(More)
Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) have been used to assist people with impairments since many years. In most of these applications the BCI is intended to substitute functions the user is no longer able to perform without help. For example BCIs could be used for communication and for control of devices like robotic arms, wheelchairs or also orthoses and(More)
A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is a tool for reading and interpreting signals that are derived from the user's brain, for example using Electroencephalography (EEG) to record signals from the user's scalp. Based on these signals, applications and external devices can be controlled. In the last decades a variety of different BCIs for communication and(More)
Brain-computer interface (BCI) systems have been used primarily to provide communication for persons with severe movement disabilities. This paper presents a new system that extends BCI technology to a new patient group: persons diagnosed with stroke. This system, called recoveriX, is designed to detect changes in motor imagery in real-time to help monitor(More)
This paper relays to a research project regarding the design and development of a Hybrid FES-mechanical Intelligent Haptic Robot-Glove (IHRG) for the rehabilitation of the patients who suffered a cerebrovascular accident (CVA). The IHRG is an exoskeleton that supports the human hand and hand activities by using control architectures for dexterous grasping(More)
This paper presents the design and the development process of a hybrid FES-Exoskeleton (EXOSLIM) system intended for rehabilitation of the upper limbs in stroke patients. The present work is aiming to develop an exoskeleton that supports the human upper limb activities by using a control architecture for shoulder flexion and extension, abduction and(More)
Robotics rehabilitation is a research field that involves robotic devices adapted to assist various sensory-motor functions, to assist therapy and to evaluate the sensory-motor performance. Rehabilitation robots are catching popularity among patients and are generally well tolerated. This paper presents the development and the control structure of an(More)
