CREB’s FabMeetup about Innovative Bio Technologies

The UPC Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering (CREB) presented ten different projects about Innovative Bio Technologies at FabCafe Barcelona (C/ Bailén, 11) during two FabMeetup sessions, held on February 15th and May 25th. FabMeetups are casual events to meet creative and entrepreneur people, and their objective is to encourage innovation from Barcelona and to promote the creation of new start-ups, products or concepts. Each participant had 5 minutes to explain its idea, concept and to eventually present a prototype. The Biomechanical Engineering Lab (BIOMEC) participated with [...]

Evaluation of gait symmetry in paediatric patients with hemiparesis

Belén Hidalgo presented her Master’s thesis entitled “Gait kinematics and symmetry in patients with hemiparesis using an audio feedback device” on December 16th at University of Zaragoza. The work corresponds to the Master’s Program in Biomedical Engineering from that university, and has been carried out during Belén’s 6-month stay at the Biomechanical Engineering Lab (BIOMEC). The project has been developed in collaboration with Sant Joan de Déu - Barcelona Children's Hospital (HSJD) and the company Draco Systems. The clinical staff, from the Department of Rehabilitation and Physical [...]

BIOMEC participated in ICNR 2016 and WeRob 2016 in Segovia

Members of the Biomechanical Engineering Lab (BIOMEC) attended the 3rd International Conference on Neurorehabilitation (ICNR 2016) and the 2nd International Symposium on Wearable Robotics (WeRob 2016), held in La Granja de San Ildefonso (Segovia) from October 18th to 21st, 2016. ICNR was focused in current state-of-the-art and future trends in neural rehabilitation, while WeRob addressed novel approaches in technology for wearable robots in the clinical field. The Lab presented the last work developed in the framework of the HYBOR project, funded by MINECO. The photo on the left [...]
