RETRAINER – REaching and grasping Training based on Robotic hybrid AssIstance for Neurological patients: End users Real life evaluation
RETRAINER is an innovation project funded by the EU under the Horizon 2020 program in the Grant Agreement N° 644721.
The aim of the RETRAINER proposal is to tune and validate advanced, robot-based technologies to facilitate recovery of arm and hand function in stroke survivors and to verify extensively the use of the system by end-users. RETRAINER will allow the users to use their own arm and hand as much and as soon as possible after the trauma so to achieve the best outcomes in rehabilitation.
A continuous iterative process between the technology development and the testing feedback will drive the whole project. RETRAINER will implement a full technology transfer from the results of a previous FP7 project, MUNDUS, aimed at setting up a similar assistive device for severely disabled people in daily life activities.
