Pain due to sensorimotor impairment
Our mission is to better understand pain due to sensorimotor impairment, such as a phantom limb pain, and use this knowledge to develop therapies to relive pain and improve quality of life. To this end, we are constantly testing hypotheses and technologies to help treat pain that conventional therapies did not resolve. If you suffer from phantom limb pain or any other pain related to a sensorimotor impairment, get in contact with us!
Lower limb amputations (legs)
We are developing a new concept of prosthetic legs that interface to your nerves, muscles and skeleton. They allow for intuitive neural control and sensory feedback similar to that of biological legs. They will be more comfortable and useful as they will provide you with power when you want to want to climb stairs, for example.
We are developing rehabilitation treatments using artificial intelligence, virtual environments, and serious games. We are currently focusing on restoring function after stroke, spinal cord injury, and similar conditions. The treatments are aimed at alleviating pain and improving motor control and sensory perception.
Upper limb amputations (arms)
We developed the new concept of neuromusculoskeletal prosthesis, which are artificial limbs connected to your nerves, muscles and skeleton. This bionic arm is comfortable and can be worn all day, every day. It also provides superior control compared to that obtained with conventional surface electrodes and it has unique sensory feedback perceived intuitively arising from the bionic hand. Currently, this is is the only clinically viable technology with these features that can be used chronically and uninterruptedly in daily life.
