The key element behind each result achieved in Ab.Acus is our research coordination attitude and skills. Our project management methods, oriented to research activities and consortia, are the glue that holds a project together ensuring that quality and objectives are met on time and on budget. Project management activities held by Ab.Acus aim to control project from beginning to end, ensuring that initiatives and goals are strategically aligned, the project has stakeholders support, and everyone is on the same page, even in the highly variegated multidisciplinary research domain characterised by a multitude of views, methods and approaches from engineering to medicine, from social sciences to biology.
Ab.Acus can rely on wide experience in international cooperative projects where our comprehensive skills and methods have been validated and enriched over the years. Project management tasks include the planning of project, identification of the best partners according to the specific project scope, monitoring and reporting of project progression, accounting and its final delivery.
Geographically distributed teams, mission critical contexts and cross-sectorial topics at the edge of innovation are the distinctive elements of the projects and activities that are daily managed.
Our project management methods are mainly based on the most innovative manifesto such as Scrum, Kanban and Lean while facing all the issues related to a strongly regulated market such as the medical device one.
The goal of AGREE is the development of a device for the rehabilitation and the daily assistance of the upper limb motion to empower the person with motor disabilities in daily living activities performance.
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.
MUNDUS is an assistive framework for recovering direct interaction capability of severely motor impaired people based on arm reaching and hand function. MUNDUS uses any residual control of the end-user, thus it is suitable for long term utilization in daily activities.
The SMILING project has planned to diminish age related impairments by interfering with mobility disability and improving carry-over into real life situations. The new approach is intended to challenge the patient to solve new motor problems in real time by inducing variable environments that need active response and problem solving from the target population.
The goal HAPPY AGING is to counterbalance the limitations due to ageing and implement a system to monitor daily activities and support in everyday life. The main objectives are support independent living at home of elderly people, match demand of technology by elderly with the current supply of the market and develop and integrate a customizable system able to fulfill older people needs and expectations.
