Adaptive neuromotor rehabilitation of patients with multiple sclerosis
The goal of the EU-funded REMAp project is to create a novel approach to the neuromotor rehabilitation of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) employing mechanisms of recovery based on body–machine interfaces (BMI). The idea is that during rehabilitative training the entire nervous system, from the periphery to the brain, goes through a reorganisation, and this can be exploited to design more effective interventions. Muscle and kinematic synergies will be used to develop an MS-specific functional evaluation tool to monitor the disease and the effects of treatment. Data will be applied to design a BMI using residual mobility and specific exercises to help MS patients reach full functional potential. The adaptive nature of BMI will benefit patients with different degrees of impairment.
