The NeuroAssist scope is to develop a demonstration model for the treatment of brachial monoparesis in the form of a new product consisting of an innovative robotic system which integrates three robotic modules, sensors and improved control.

The main objectives of the project:

(O1)The definition of a medical protocol for the robotic assisted rehabilitation for brachial monoparesis covering different disability scenarios by defining specific performance parameters of the NeuroAssist robotic system in order to be validated at TRL 4.

(O2) The analysis of each individual robotic module based on the numeric simulations and preliminary results defining all the necessary improvements for their assembly within NeuroAssist.

(O3) The setup of a system internal and external of sensors, the first being patient centred and the later for the robotic system in order to generate data leading to: increased safety, improved control algorithms, real-time monitoring, patient progress assessment and data storage into a database.

(O4) The development of the NeuroAssist robotic system with new functionalities in the control system adding specific functions and a multi-layer decisional algorithm based on the data from the sensors.

(O5) The experimental testing and validation of the NeuroAssist system at TRL4 using the medical protocol under the supervision of medical experts demonstrating their potential for the rehabilitation of subjects with different neurological diseases that lead to physical impairments.
