20.08.13  -             The program for the Second Demove Symposium (22-23. October 2013) has been uploaded. 


08.05.13  -             Dr. Massimo Sartori has been selected for the Visiting Scholar Program 2013 at the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation and Research at Stanford University. More information at: http://opensim.stanford.edu/support/scholars.html


08.05.13  -             Dr. Massimo Sartori is invited to give an on-line webinar on neuromusculoskeletal modeling at the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation and Research at Stanford University.The webinar will take place on June 6, 2013 and will be streamed online


01.01.2013  -          Dr. Ning Jiang became a member of the editorial board of IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (former IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine) as Associated Editor (AE).


23.10.2012   -         The book, co-authored by Professor Deborah Falla, entitled "Whiplash, Headache and Neck Pain: Research-based directions for physical therapies" has now been translated into Korean. The book, which is available in English, Spanish, Japanese, Swedish and Korean presents an evidence-based rehabilitation program for patients with neck pain and headache based on the principles of motor learning.


22.10.2012   -          Prof. Dr. Dario Farina, together with Dr. Winnie Jensen (Aalborg University) and Prof. Metin Akay (University of Houston), is the Editor of the new book "Introduction to Neural Engineering for Motor Rehabilitation" (Wiley/IEEE Publisher) which is now available in the scientific libraries (http://eu.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470916737.html). In this book, Prof. Farina and his co-Editors have collected contributions from several world-leading experts in the field of neurorehabilitation to provide a broad overview on modern technologies for replacing, restoring, or modulating lost or impaired motor functions. Currently, no book other than this one covers this broad range of topics within motor rehabilitation technology. With a focus on cutting edge technology, it describes state-of-the-art methods within this field, from brain-computer interfaces to spinal and cortical plasticity. Touching on electrode design, signal processing, the neurophysiology of movement, robotics, and much more, this innovative volume collects the latest information for a wide range of readers working in biomedical engineering. Prof. Farina's work on this book has been possible by the ERC Advanced Grant DEMOVE that he holds since July 2011.


11.10.2012   -          The conference paper: "The HyVE: Hybrid Vibro-Electrotactile stimulation for sensory feedback in upper limb prostheses" (authors: Marco D'Alonzo, Strahinja Dosen, Christian Cipriani and Dario Farina), which has been accepted for presentation at the "International Conference on NeuroRehabilitation" ICNR2012 (http://www.icnr2012.org/), has been selected among the finalists of the ICNR2012 Student Paper Competition. The competition final will be held on Thursday 15th November.

This recognition indicates the high impact of this contribution in neurotechnologies. In this paper, we present, together with collaborators from Scuola Sant'Anna di Pisa, a new system for providing sensory feedback in upper limb prostheses by both vibration and electrical stimuli.


06.09.2012   -          The Department of Neurorehabilitation Engineering has developed brain-computer interfacing (BCI) methods for inducing plastic changes in the nervous system for stroke rehabilitation. This work has been mainly carried out in collaboration with Aalborg University and within the EU Project BETTER. This work has now been selected by an International Jury among the 10 top-ranked world-wide projects in BCI and is thus included in the list of nominees for the Annual BCI Research Award 2012 (http://www.biosignal.at/bci-award/winners.php). The International Annual BCI Award is one of the top accolades in BCI research. The Award was created to recognize outstanding and innovative research in the field of BCI (http://www.biosignal.at/bci-award/index.php) and is open to any BCI research worldwide. The election of the Department activities among the 10 top BCI projects of the year gives full recognition to the developments by our group in this area.


24.07.2012   -          Prof. Dr. Dario Farina has become President of the International Society for Electrophysiology and Kinesiology (ISEK) and will cover this role for the period 2012-2014


24.07.2012   -          Dr. Francesco Negro has obtained the prestigious KP Granata Young Scientist Award (http://www.vtvfamilyfoundation.org/documents/KP%20GRANATA%20AWARD.pdf) at the XIX Congress of the International Society for Electrophysiology and Kinesiology (Brisbane, Australia, July 19-21, 2012)
