BruBotics currently has over 30 international (H2020, FP7, ERC,...), national (FWO) and regional (IWT SBO, iMinds ICON, Flanders Make ICON, Innoviris...) projects running. Below are some of our most exciting ongoing projects. Of course, feel free to contact us for more information on one of our featured projects.
A robot that can feel what a therapist feels when treating a patient, that can adjust the intensity of rehabilitation exercises at any time according to the patient's abilities and needs, and that can thus go on for hours without getting tired: it seems like fiction, and yet researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and imec have now finished a prototype that unites all these skills in one robot.
The SARA project investigated the use of augmented reality to overlay a 3D rendering of medical images and planning information onto the patient’s anatomy during neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery to enhance the Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) experience.
