1 S P R I N T Smart mobility devices for improved mobility and independent living

2 The problem •Ageing •Decrease of people between 20 and 64 years old Population according to age groups

3 •Elderly loose mobility, physical condition and independency  increase of needed care •Decrease of young people and healthy elderly  less manpower in care •Yearly 2 hrs more work for healthcare professionals The problem

4 Ageing  Neuropathy   balance capacities   frequency of falling   hip fractures, hospital admittance and dependency The problem

5 SPRINT Vision •Improve mobility  independency and quality of life  •More efficient health care by a shift from intramural to extramural health care •More efficient health care by patient-driven approach

6 SPRINT Mission 1.Interactive training programs and devices to prevent falls 2.Interactive training programs and devices for rehabilitation at home 3.Smart prostheses and orthoses, patient-driven Three research lines

7 Savings In NL,140.000 elderly treated after a fall accident Annual direct + indirect costs: 400 M€ With 30% decrease:  120 M€ Prosthetic care: 140 M€ intelligent prosthesis + telecare:  50 M€ Shortening hospital rehabilitation:  36 M€

8 •Learning process of motor control •Device development •Serious gaming for training •Telemonitoring •On-site tests •Valorisation Research and technology

9 representation muscle properties prosthetic dynamics foot-knee interaction terrain adjustment and fitting sensory input multi body dynamics Control technologies

10 EMG Force Motion Computer Generated 3D Environment Theory CAREN Video Motion Audio Moments of Force inverse forward Dynamics human body model Motion & Forces

11 How do amputees learn?

12 Sensor technologies •Myoelectric prosthesis often unused •Motions after each other and not at the same time; not functional Patient-driven instead of technology-driven

13 •Balance training •Training at home Training technologies

14 Vibrating Insoles Neuropathy   balance capacities   risk of falling   hip fractures, hospital admittance and dependency Stochastic vibration •Threshold •Signal •Noise Rehabilition technologies

15 Serious gaming •Interface technologies to implement serious gaming •Smart, self-learning algorithms for dynamic feedback •User interfaces for telemonitoring

16 IT ICT Telemonitoring • Algorithms for dynamic feedback • User interfaces for telemonitoring

17 Reflex leg •Reflexive control, physiological motor control •Controllable efficient actuator Smart prostheses / orthoses

18 Improved fixation by osteo-integration Smart prostheses / orthoses
