ResearchXchange: Liberty Robotic Rehabilitation Platform
The BFH’s Research Xchange event series offers interactions and exchanges of information between members of the BFH’s institutes and with cooperation partners from industry and other research institutions.
This time, Dr Juan Fang will present a robotic rehabilitation device that serves as a platform for intensive, bed-bound whole-body rehabilitation (arm-leg) of patients with severe disabilities and functional limitations. In this presentation, the general concept, different prototypes and the first test results will be presented. The potential impact of this project will also be discussed.
Dr Juan Fang is a researcher at the Institute for Rehabilitation and Performance Technology IRPT at the Bern University of Applied Sciences Technology & Informatics.
