This annual meeting allows the different research groups to present their latest developments and encourages the presence of their youngest researchers. Moreover, several discussion forums are established between engineers and physicians and hospitals, since they are well aware of society’s needs in this field. But also, forums between the Network and industry are favoured, as they are able to develop the products that society demands.

CREB UPC researchers presented a study of a device for improving the gait of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The study was developed as Paula Comas’ final degree project in collaboration with Duchenne Parent Project Spain. Likewise, the researcher Massimo Cenciarini presented a study of an exoskeleton for the measurement of joint stiffness in stroke patients.

As CREB, we are glad to see that these events are finally back since it is a fact that face-to-face experiences provide a special atmosphere as our researchers attest:  “It was very enriching, and we had the opportunity to talk to leading researchers in biomechanics in Spain.”

Next stop, Universidad de Zaragoza 2022!
