Raimon Jané, group leader at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) and professor at UPC, appears in the media for the development of a new methodology, using ‘smartphones’, which allows determining, objectively and quantitatively, the function of trunk in patients with spinal cord injury.
The new methodology, published in the ‘Journal of Neural Engineering’ and using the smartphone, represents a very useful tool for objective and quantifiable monitoring during rehabilitation sessions.
For the first time, the StartReact effect in the trunk muscles of patients with spinal cord injury has been studied and its effect has been quantified and also differentiated between cervical and thoracic injuries, by interpreting biomedical signals.
