Inertial WBAN for Motor Rehabilitation, Learning and Monitoring
Thanks to the experience maturated by people of the group, at the time they were at DEI, University of Bologna, in several EU and National projects (e.g. FP6 SENSACTIONAAL, FP7 SMILING, FP7 CuPiD and RER PERHL) in cooperation with the Bioengineering group led by Prof. Chiari, the E3DA Unit keep invastigating on the use of wireless body area networks, with particular focus on inertial sensing and audio and vibrotactile actuation, in several application domain. We have a strong experience in particular in wireless IMU nodes design, firmware development for embedded sensor fusion (e.g. Kalman filtering), embedded motor activity (ADL) or gesture recognition, gait parameter extraction and monitoring. Examples are motor rehabilitation in PD, long-term monitoring of ADL, but also sport and fitness.
