Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Location system and navigation assistance for blind people, using artificial vision.Robesafe group from Alcalá University is developing an assistance navigation system for blind people to guide them in structured indoor environments (such as corridors, distributors, rooms ...) and outdoor environments as well, using the merger between a GPS sensor and artificial vision. The system will show the path to follow to get to a destination, using acoustic information obtained by a synthesizer voice, similar to how the current GPS navigators do it. The group is interested in reaching commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies dedicated to the designing of mobility assistance systems for blind people.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Walker for the mobility of people with motor disability.A research group from the Signal Theory and Communications Department of Alcalá University has developed a disability walker for improving the mobility of people with motor disability. This walker includes a guide for the leg together with an electronic system, that improves the user of manoeuvrability allowing the configuration of basic actions. This invention is part of the "Loyalty Technological Program," which has been designed by the research group to raise funds for the development and adaptation of technical aids that improve the quality of people life with motor impairments. The group is looking for collaboration agreements with institutions or companies that want to be part of the "Loyalty Technological Program" http://padrinotecnologico.org/proyectos/instituciones/ Moreover, the group is interested in reaching license, collaboration, manufacturing or commercial agreements with technical assistance with orthopaedics, medical equipment, and health technology companies. Other kind of institutions interested in sponsoring this invention are also welcome.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:System for a customized and natural rehabilitation and interaction of disabled peopleResearchers at Institute for Computing Research of the University of Alicante have developed a multisensor system for rehabilitation and interaction of people with motor and cognitive disabilities. The system enables to perform different therapies using multiple modes of interaction (pose and gestures of the body and hands, voice, touch and gaze position) depending on the type and degree of disability. Through a training process, the system can be customized enabling the definition of patients’ own gestures for each sensor. The system is integrated with a range of applications for rehabilitation through virtual reality applications and 3D interfaces. Examples of these applications could be the realization of puzzles, mazes and writing with predictive text. The system also provides a flexible and modular framework for the development of new applications oriented to new therapies. Entities and companies interested in commercial agreement, technical assistance or technical cooperation or a combination of some of these services are sought.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Technologies for the improvement of the mobility of people with motor affectationThe research group "Multisensorial analysis and recognition" from Alcalá University has developed different technologies: a walker, a wheelchair for children of early age, a multisensory cabin and a spoon, to improve the lifes of people with certain motor affections. These inventions are part of the "Padrino Tecnológico Program", which has been designed by the research group itself, to raise funds for the development and adaptation of technical aids that cover the needs detected in people with low personal autonomy. The group seeks collaboration agreements with institutions or companies that want to be part of the "Padrino Tecnológico Program”: http://padrinotecnolognolog.org/proyectos/instituciones/ The group also want to reach license, collaboration, manufacturing or commercial agreements with technical assistance with orthopedic companies, medical equipment, and health technologies.
