Medical Imaging Technologies- Robot-assisted Rehabilitation


Medical Imaging Technologies

The main objective of this project is to measure rehabilitation outcomes using medical imaging technologies. In short, the idea is using Diffusion MRI and fMRI to analyze the advantages of using robot-assisted rehabilitation therapy.

This project is a collaboration between our research group at Universidad Miguel Hernandez and Inscanner.

Financial Entity: Universidad Miguel Hernández and Inscanner

Researchers: Nicolas Garcia Aracil, Eduardo Fernandez Jover, Angela Bernabeu

PUPArm- Proof of Concept


CLINICAL- PROOF OF CONCEPT

The main objective of this project is to analyse the outcome of the robot-assisted rehabilitation therapy in at least 30 sub-acute and chronic stroke patients, randomly assigned to 2 different experimental groups:

Control group: this group, composed by at least 15 patients, will receive three months of standard rehabilitation therapy, according to rehabilitation protocols defined by clinical experts.

Robot-aided rehabilitation group: this group, composed by at least 15 patients, will receive three months of robot-aided rehabilitation therapy, according to rehabilitation protocols defined by clinical experts.

The aim of these experiments is to provide the “proof of concept” of the PUParm robot to be a technological system, capable of delivering rehabilitation therapy, tailored on the specific needs of the single patient.

Financial Entity: Universidad Miguel Hernández

iProstate. 3D rendering tool for localization and staging of prostate cancer


iProstate is a software application (spanish registration nº V-159-11) developed by Nbio and José Luis Ruiz-Cerdá, MD from the Hospital la Fe from Valencia.

iProstate allows the introduction of data from biopsies, PSA and Gleason from a patient and it makes a prediction for the staging and spatial localization of the tumoral tissues.

iProstate also allows the 3D visualization of the tumour. iProstate has several options for making reports for each patient.

MATES – Robotic platform for NOTES/SILS assistance


Minimally invasive surgery has required the acquisition of new skills on the part of surgeons and the creation of new tools, an area in which robotics is an invaluable help. The current trend is towards reducing the number of incisions practiced on the patient to a minimum. SILS (Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery) and NOTES (Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery) techniques have thus emerged, and these require a new generation of robotic tools.

Hiperbaric Medicine Chair


Hyperbaric medicine, also known as hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy, is the medical use of oxygen at a level higher than atmospheric pressure.
Initially, HBO was developed as a treatment for diving disorders involving bubbles of gas in the tissues, such as decompression sickness and gas embolism. The chamber cures decompression sickness and gas embolism by increasing pressure, reducing the size of the gas bubbles and improving the transport of blood to downstream tissues. The high concentrations of oxygen in the tissues are beneficial in keeping oxygen-starved tissues alive, and have the effect of removing the nitrogen from the bubble, making it smaller until it consists only of oxygen, which is re-absorbed into the body. After elimination of bubbles, the pressure is gradually reduced back to atmospheric levels.
