NUSHU R: helping stroke patients recover
From October 26 to October 27 the NUSHU R kickoff meeting took place at Magnes HQ.
NUSHU R is our latest European project in collaboration with DeepBlue and EBRI (European Brain Research Institute by Rita Levi-Montalcini). NUSHU R is an Eureka Eurostars project running for 2 years starting September 2022. We are looking forward to a successful collaboration with our Italian partners and cannot wait to share more updates on the project’s outcome with the world. Stay tuned for more!
About the Project:
Together with our project partners, we are developing a wearable, at-home gait rehabilitation system for stroke survivors. The system is based on Magnes NUSHU smart shoes with integrated sensors. The system can analyze movements in real-time and includes haptic stimulators that give immediate feedback to individuals wearing the shoes enabling personalized at-home rehabilitation exercises.
Founded in 2002 by Nobel Laureate Rita Levi-Momtalcini, EBRI is an international research center that fosters and promotes brain research with the aim of finding new therapies for neurodegenerative diseases and other neurological disorders.
Deep Blue specializes in research and consulting on human-centered design and validation in transport, manufacturing, healthcare, and the environment. Their mission is to help organizations innovate by analyzing problems and procedures, designing tailored solutions, and validating them in the field.
