I am Angelo Basteris, an Assistant Professor with Maersk McKinney Moller Institute at University of Southern Denmark - Syddansk Universitet (SDU)
In past, I worked with Prof. Lorenzo Masia at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) on the development of a robot for wrist rehabilitation for people with stroke and orthopedic injuries (WristBot), technologies for people with whiplash associated disorder and neck pain with Prof.Michele Sterling at Griffith University (Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia) and on home-based robot rehabilitation of people with stroke (SCRIPT project - Supervised Care and Rehabilitation Involving Personal Telerobotics - http://scriptproject.eu, coordinated by Dr. Farshid Amirabdollahian at University of Hertfordshire, UK).
In my PhD research, I used technology for the rehabilitation of people with multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's Disease, at the Neurolab - DIBRIS - at University of Genoa (Italy), supervised by Prof. Vittorio Sanguineti.
My dream is to see one of my ideas helping a lot of people.
One of the attempts, for people with hand spasticity (perhaps after stroke) is here
I believe that if we want to really improve healthcare with technology this has to be simple and provide a solution to contingent problems/needs, either for patients, their carers or professionals.
