ICT technologies, anthropometry, biomechanics, electronic sensors and 3D vision technologies can be combined to implement powerful solutions in the frame of rehabilitation. The know-how developed at the Laboratory spans from experimental work on exoskeletons (the REWALK project), the development of instrumented crutches, the manipulation of 3D point clouds for bio-mechanical modeling purposes (the Smart Gym).

Most of these projects have been carried out in collaboration with our joint Laboratory lead by Prof. Matteo Lancini, the Laboratory of Mechanical and Thermal Measurments of the University of Brescia.
