Pre-commercial public procurement relating to: Rehabilitative Exoskeletons. CCP has been selected by Regione Lombardia to carry on a medical need relative to “a mechatronic exoskeletric system”, capable of managing motor and rehabilitative therapy for neurological patients with upper limb motor disability. In detail, the device will allow the rehabilitative team to plan and the patient to perform a wide range of customized movements, on the basis of the individual performance. And it should be also able to adapt the therapy through measurement of functional recovery and analysis of electrophysiological signs, detected by Electroencephalography (EEG) and Electromyography (EMG). The system will finally include neuromodulation techniques .
Pre-commercial public procurement develops in three phases:
- PHASE I-SOLUTION DRAFTING: research and development activities aim to design an Innovative Solution and elaborate a plan of implementation of the same.
- PHASE II- DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF THE PROTOTYPE: research and development activities aim to create a prototype of the Innovative Solution developed in Phase I.
- PHASE III-TESTING: research and development activities aim to test the previously developed prototype in a real environment, with the help of accurately selected patients.
CCP, in quality of regional clinical validation centre is involved in phase II and phase III.
AMONTRACK, “AppMONitoring and TRaining Adherence with Chronic patients” Project submitted and co-funded under the Research and Innovation call Ed. 2017- Misura A- Regione Lombardia. Casa Cura Privata Policlinico has been called to support the project, led by the Lombard SME ICT “Think4Future”, as Research Centre affiliated to Questio system. The main objective of this project is to test LifeCharger App (LC) as an instrument for improving Patient Engagement and supporting the management of the patients therapy in Parkinson’s, as well as developing a new way of monitoring his symptoms. CCPP clinical team supported technicians in the development of the contents of this App, in order to optimise the compliance of chronic patients and create a user-friendly instrument for both patients and healthcare workers.
REACT, “REhAbilitation through CogniTive exercises”, submitted and co-funded under the Research and Innovation call Ed. 2016- Misura A- Regione Lombardia. Casa Cura Privata Policlinico has been called to support the project, led by the Lombard SME ICT “eLevel Communication”, as Research Centre affiliated to Questio system. Project aimed to an efficacy study of a programme platform for developing rehabilitative and re-educational multimedia contents (Quiddis) to promote the acquisition of motor activities and the improvement of non-specific cognitive functions, also improving the quality of life of the patients. The organisational impact in a clinical setting and the possibility of a home-treatment (tele-rehabilitation) has been evaluated as a secondary objective. On the basis of this pilot project a clinical trial, entitled REACT: “Re-Educational ACtivities through Technology” and approved by Comitato Etico territoriale Milano Area B, has been started since August 2018.
REHABILITY, submitted and co-funded under the Research and Innovation call Ed. 2015- Misura A- Regione Lombardia. Casa Cura Privata Policlinico has been called to support the project, led by the Lombard SME “Imaginary”, as Research Centre affiliated to Questio system. A research project, with the shared aims of developing and evaluating technologies in the “health and wellbeing” field, has involved the team led by Dr. Corbo in designing and testing exergames for motor rehabilitation of the upper-limb, in patients suffering from cerebral strokes. A clinical trial, approved by CE territoriale Milano Area B and entitled “Virtual Reality for Rehabilitation of the upper limb after cerebral strokes (RVriabAS)”, has started since Febraury 2017.
