High quality education, frontier research and exploitation of research results: this is the mission of the Biorobotics Institute of the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies. The Institute, a university center of excellence founded in 2011, has built over the years a wide wealth of knowledge and skills in various sectors of biorobotics, including social robotics, industrial robotics, assistance robotics, rehabilitation robotics, surgical robotics, neural engineering, cognitive systems, bio-inspired robots and all the related ethical, legal, social and economic implications.
Role of Biorobotics Institute of the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in the project
The Institute will deal with the design, development, integration and testing of an innovative wearable device for measuring muscular strength and motor activity in patients affected by neuro-muscular diseases. The device, appropriately interfaced with the software libraries developed by the other partners, will allow an objective assessment of the degree of impairment of the muscular structures in order to improve the early diagnosis and the personalization of the treatment.
