Technological-Innovation Laboratory


  • Description
    • This laboratory is dedicated to the development and assessment of technology for clinical purposes. A partnership with the robotics laboratory at the Université de Sherbrooke (IntroLab) enables engineers and clinicians to work closely together on developing technologies with applications in rehabilitation. This laboratory has some unique equipment at the cutting edge of technology, such as a robot that measures the exertion put forth by a patient with a neurological impairment (such as stroke) during arm exercises, and a motorized wheelchair equipped with sonar, GPS, and force sensors under the seat. The engineers in this laboratory also work on creating applications for the various technologies developed.
  • Expertise
      • Isokinetic dynamometer (Biodex)
      • ERMASA robot (upper-limb robotic rehabilitation subsequent to stroke)
      • TEO (timing exerciser orthosis) robot
      • Instrumented motorized wheelchair
      • Actimetry and inertial systems (WIMU, Xsens, APDM)
  • Researchers
    • Marie-Hélène Milot, Patrick Boissy, and François Michaud
