The BRRC brings together technology, human and life sciences researchers, patients and clinicians in a center with state of the art movement analysis and rehabilitation technologies, uniquely complemented with a range of prototypes and technologies developed by BruBotics-VUB.
For example, the BRRC will be used to test commercial rehabilitation robots and technologies, but also rehabilitation robots (exoskeletons, …) and rehabilitation technology (virtual reality applications, gaming devices, sensors,…) that are designed by our Brubotics colleagues from the engineering departments.
The available infrastructure includes:
- 14 Vicon mocap cameras
- 3 build-in AMTI force plates
- GAITRite system
- 16-channel Cometa EMG device
- MetaMax 3B gas analysis system
- EKSO NR gait rehabilitation exoskeleton
- Microsoft Hololens
- Several VR devices
- Self-paced treadmill
