Strategic Research Programme: Exercise and the brain in health & diseases: the added value of human-centered robotics

Project Details


One of the current bottlenecks in the field of robotics with the aim of assisting human movement is the effectiveness of exoskeletal devices. The department MFYS is specialized in the assessment of psycho-physiological measurements during rest and movement, which can help to determine the effectiveness of robot-assisted human movement. In the past, this resulted in pioneering work regarding brain images during robot-assisted walking. Recently, research of the department focussed on measuring brain electrocortical activity using electro-encephalography (EEG). This is relevant to the field of robotics, since one of the main goals is to enable the control of robotic parts with brain-computer interfaces (using EEG).
