On June 22, the BIOMEC research group from CREB UPC, in collaboration with the Institute of Robotics and Industrial Informatics and the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, showcased the ongoing developments of the ArmTracker project to the public. The project aims to create a portable system for evaluating the motor function of patients diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy.

The presentation took place as part of the “Visit the Research of La Marató” initiative, designed to provide citizens with insights into the cutting-edge research conducted in prominent centers across Catalonia. This noble endeavor is spearheaded by the Foundation La Marató de TV3, seeking to express gratitude to the public for their support and engagement in the research projects backed by La Marató.

By offering the opportunity for individuals to witness the groundbreaking work carried out by the BIOMEC research group and their partners, the event fostered social awareness, knowledge dissemination, and transparency. Attendees were able to witness firsthand the strides being made in improving the lives of individuals affected by these debilitating muscular conditions.

Members of the ArmTracker project, joined by visitors at Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, stand united in their commitment to advancing research and care for those with muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy.
