Human Motor Re(Learning): The Use of Sensor Information Fusion.

This project aims to identify and to characterize the main motor behavioural parameters and factors of upper-limb motor skills performed by humans during daily-life activities. The main goals of the project are: (1) characterization of motor skills of the upper limbs; (2) identification of tasks and environmental features causative of changes (3) characterization of the upper limbs' functional tasks; (4) parametrization of the healthy and pathological pattern of human movement; (5) definition of perceptive and motor variables that influence motor (re) learning; (6) study of the influence of multimodal feedback in motor control; (7) procedure's validation study with healthy participants and stroke patients.

Duration:  24 months (started 01-06-2013)
