NeuroSipe

The NeuroSipe Programme is a sustainable community and cooperation among Dutch Universities, university medical centers, and companies, which aims to develop diagnostic tools for neurological disorders. The primary focus of NeuroSIPE will be on the neuromuscular system, the autonomous cardiovascular system, the thermoregulation system and the pain regulating system.

EXPLICIT

Prospective cohort studies show that about 80% of all stroke survivors have an upper limb paresis immediately after stroke. Only one third of all stroke patients will regain some dexterity, whereas well-researched evidence based therapies for an effective treatment of the upper limb are lacking. However, the main claim of the literature is that functional recovery of the upper paretic limb is mainly defined within the first month post stroke and that rehabilitation services should be applied preferably within this time window of recovery. Furthermore, it is known that exercise-related interventions are most effective when they are applied intensively in a task-oriented way.

Neuras

The Neuras project aims to develop and implement novel technology to improve the assessment of disorders where sensorimotor integration is impaired as well as to stimulate neuroplasticity. Neuras will develop new hardware and clinical applications and will implement standard assessment and evaluation protocols in close collaboration with researchers, SME’s, clinicians and representatives of clinical care units. NeurAS aims to generate new foreground IP and pushes clinical care to promote the capacity of patients to deal with day-to-day environmental challenges and barriers as the ultimate way to improve autonomy and quality of life.

Lopes

The goal of the LOPES project (LOwer-extremity Powered ExoSkeleton) is to develop a robotic device (LOPES) for gait training and assessment of motor function in stroke survivors. This involves designing the mechanical setup of the exoskeleton as well as its control structure. LOPES will be used to optimize the functional outcome of (robot-aided) gait training in chronic stroke survivor.
