Laboratory for Analysis and Treatment of Neuromotor Disorders (ATND)
The ATND Lab provides a closer interaction between rehabilitation engineers and physicians to study neurobehavioral changes in people with neuromotor disorders, and to develop new clinical approaches and technologies for motor rehabilitation.
Current research activities and tools include: Analysis of movement (kinematics, kinetics) to assess post-stroke motor impairment and post-rehabilitative modifications; Advanced analysis of neurophysiologic modifications following stroke (electroencephalography, electromyography, transcranial magnetic stimulation); Robot-based upper- and lower-limb post-stroke rehabilitation (MOTORE, Lokomat).
