Rehabilitation Technology

Mittwoch, 20.03.2024

Rehabilitation engineering is the systematic application of engineering sciences to design, develop, adapt, test, evaluate, apply and distribute technological solutions to problems faced by individuals with disabilities. This covers functional areas such as mobility, communications, hearing, vision and cognition, and activities associated with employment, independent living, education and integration into the community. In this lecture series, we will focus on the human sensory-motor system and technologies to rehabilitate individuals with neurological impairment.

The following topics will be covered:
• Introduction
• Human sensory-motor system
• Motor pathologies
• Technical prerequisites: sensors and actuators
• Robotic gait therapy
• Robotic arm therapy
• Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation
• Functional electrical stimulation
• Assistive technology in dementia care

Main Learning Outcomes
• Know about the basics of the human sensory-motor system.
• Be able to analyze patient-benefit, usability, cost and efficiency of neurorehabilitation techniques.
• Understand the cognitive, perceptive and motor requirements of activities of daily living and how impairment can affect function.
• Gain an overview of the latest technological development in the field of rehabilitation technology.
