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:Device and method for ventricular repolarization alternans detection by windowing.A Spanish research group from the Department of Signal Theory and Communications at University of Alcalá (Spain) has designed a device and method for detecting ventricular repolarization alternans based on continuous time analysis and the extraction of the information using windowing. As a main feature, the method presents high robustness against noise and it is very robust against variability of heart rate due to standardization techniques used. Moreover, it includes a procedure to separate the repolarization information from artifacts. Because of these characteristics, it is particularly suitable for implementation in portable monitoring devices and implantable devices. The group is looking for companies of Medical equipment and health technology to reach licensing agreements or collaboration and commercial agreements for technical assistance.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Portable device to measure the displacement maps on surfaces in the three spatial directionsA Spanish research group from the Department of Signal Theory and Communications of the University of Alcalá along with a Spanish research group from the Department of Mechanical and Mining Engineering of the University of Jaén has developed a portable optoelectronic device to measure the displacement of each surface element in an object when is subjected to deformation. In particular, the device allows obtaining maps of long range displacement (greater than mm) in dynamic regime (in real time). Thus this system is very useful in the experimental study of the materials’ mechanical properties, especially if they suffer large deformations at high speed. It is a computationally simpler alternative and more inexpensive than the digital mapping technique for 3D images which is currently the only one allowing such measures. The group seeks licensing agreements, collaborative and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
