ReLive – Nazarbayev University’s scientific start-up project on the rehabilitation of stroke patients will participate at a special event hosted by the UN. The special event entitled “The Role of Assistive Technology in Accelerating Learning and Participation of Children with Disabilities” will take place in Geneva, March 7-8, 2019.
ReLive is an innovative solution for the rehabilitation of patients after a stroke, which includes equipment and software for reading and recognizing brain signals, a microcontroller, and an exoskeleton of the upper limbs. Brain signals are recorded by a mobile electroencephalograph, and then are sent to a computer. The system allows the patient to mentally manage the exoskeleton (artificial limbs). The use of this technology will improve the recovery process of patients. Researchers have done series of test-drives with the prototype and found that it is functioning properly.
The project was designed by scholars and students of Nazarbayev University, led by assistant professor Prashant Jamwal (School of Engineering) and Ph.D. student Beybit Abdikenov (School of Engineering). The team consists of the specialists in the fields of robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and medicine: A. Kapsalyamov, B. Zholdaskhan, Z. Iklasov, A. Sharipov, and the neuropathologist R. Tautanova.
