The Brubotics Rehabilitation Research Center (BRRC) is the new lab of the Rehabilitation Research group. This lab is a state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary innovation hub that offers human movement analysis and technology-supported rehabilitation research. The BRRC is the result of a longstanding collaboration with different partners of the Brubotics group and is located centrally between the university hospital UZ Brussel and the VUB Health Campus. Our primary aim is to improve physical functioning through human-centered, technology-supported rehabilitation.
The lab is equipped with state-of-the-art measurement devices (including 14 Vicon mocap cameras, 3 build-in AMTI force plates, a 16-channel Cometa EMG device, a GAITRite system and a MetaMax 3B gas analysis system) and an EKSO NR gait rehabilitation exoskeleton.
This new BruBotics Rehabilitation Research Center enable us to further deepen our expertise in the rehabilitation technology field since its focus is on the intersection of movement analysis and technology. For example, the BRRC will be used to test commercial rehabilitation robots and technologies, but also rehabilitation robots (exoskeletons, …) and rehabilitation technology (virtual reality applications, gaming devices, sensors,…) that are designed by our Brubotics colleagues from the engineering departments.
We will keep you updated via our dedicated BruBotics Rehabilitation Research Center webpage.
