BackgroundMUNDUS is an assistive framework for recovering direct interaction capability of severely motor impaired people based on arm reaching and hand functions. It aims at achieving personalization, modularity and maximization of the user’s direct involvement in assistive systems. To this, MUNDUS exploits any residual control of the end-user and can be adapted to the level of severity or to the progression of the disease allowing the user to voluntarily interact with the environment.

A Subject-Driven Arm Exoskeleton to Support Daily Life Activities
TLDR
A quantitative evaluation of the simplest configuration of the MUNDUS system on three neurological patients and all subjects showed a good satisfaction with the system (SUS > 90/100) and would like to use the system in their daily life. Expand
Reaching and Grasping Training based on Robotic Hybrid Assistance for Neurological Patients
TLDR
This research tunes and validates advanced robot-based technologies to facilitate recovery of arm and hand function in stroke survivors and produces a set of prototypes of the RETRAINER systems to allow a wide clinical testing of the effectiveness of robotic hybrid assistance in upper limb rehabilitation.

A Wearable Multi-Site System for NMES-Based Hand Function Restoration
TLDR
The HandNMES, an electrode array for neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) aimed at grasp training and assistance, is introduced, and extensive tests with nine healthy subjects showing the efficacy of the Hand NMES in terms of stimulation performance and personalization are performed. Expand
Towards a brain computer interface driven exoskeleton for upper extremity rehabilitation
TLDR
This work proposes a novel BCI-driven exoskeleton rehabilitation system that has four degrees of freedom (DOF) for assisting the movement of the upper extremities and is integrated with an affordable and wireless EEG headset for enabling the patients to control the move of theExoskeleton with their brain activity.

TLDR
The state of the art in hybrid NMES-orthotic systems for upper limb movement restoration following spinal cord injury is presented, areas for emphasis necessary to move the field forward are suggested, and improvements in component technologies and user interfaces are suggested. Expand
Feedback control of arm movements using Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) combined with a lockable, passive exoskeleton for gravity compensation
TLDR
This contribution aims at designing a feedback control system for Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to enable reaching functions in people with no residual voluntary control of the arm and shoulder due to high level spinal cord injury. Expand
BRIDGE — Behavioural reaching interfaces during daily antigravity activities through upper limb exoskeleton: Preliminary results
TLDR
The BRIDGE project is to contrast the everyday experience of losing functions by providing people with neuromuscular diseases of a system able to exploit the best their own residual capabilities in arm movements so to keep them functional and autonomous as much as possible. Expand
Functional Rehabilitation of the Paralyzed Upper Extremity After Spinal Cord Injury by Noninvasive Hybrid Neuroprostheses
TLDR
