A group of Russian scientists from the psychology Department of Moscow state University named after M. V. Lomonosov and Scientific center of neurology” announced the first results of development of technology that allow using of the exoskeleton to return to the person who suffered a stroke, speech and movement.
Scientific article researchers on technology “the Exoskeleton of a hand controlled interface of non-invasive brain-computer”, accepted for publication in the scientific journal Psychology in Russia. Experts use, including neuropsychological syndrome analysis and the theoretical and methodological basics of psychological rehabilitation, reports gazeta.ru.
As told Yuri Zinchenko, one of the authors of the study, experts have set a goal to effectively help patients who have a stroke injured the brain, with the result that there were violations of motor function or work of the vocal apparatus. Non-invasive interface brain-computer, according to experts, is an extremely effective technique that allows such people to fully restore movement and speech. If such an interface is controlled by the exoskeleton of the hand, the exoskeleton could help in the rehabilitation of people with paresis of the hand or apraxia after a stroke.
The essence of the technology is that it allows patients to restore full operation of recidivating apparatus using the signals emitted by his own brain, which, in the first place, and recovering. In order to guide this process, we use methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging and neuropsychological syndrome analysis.
