Name of the Technology : Post-stroke tele-neurorehabilitation using an operant conditioning paradigm under volitionally driven transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation
Disability Sector : Locomotor Disability
Function : Mobility/ Holding aids
Category of research : New technology/product (not existing in the country)
Brief description of the product/ technology:
In this research we will present a use-inspired neurophysiology-based operant conditioning paradigm that is based on volitionally-driven Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to generate functional movement for restorative neurorehabilitation. This will also lead to the development and clinical validation of a cyber physical system for teleneurorehabilitation.
This is currently being pursued for patenting.
Readiness level of the product/technology: Proof of Concept (alpha level)
Anticipated time to reach the next readiness level:
Anticipated time for the technology/product to come in the market: More than two years
Any Hindrance(s) being faced w.r.t. the development of product/technology: Lack of Funds
