SoftPro: Synergy-based Open-source Foundations and Technologies for Prosthetics and RehabilitatiOn

Supervisor: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sami Haddadin
Duration: 4 years
Funded by: EU, H2020


"True progress is what places technology in everyone's hands.” (H.Ford)

The SoftPro project will study and design soft synergy-based robotics technologies to develop new prostheses, exoskeletons, and assistive devices for upper limb rehabilitation, which will greatly enhance the efficacy and accessibility to a greater number of users. Building on solid methodological bases, SoftPro will produce a significant social impact, promoting advanced robot prosthetic and assistive technology “from bench to bedside”; but it will also introduce disruptively new, admittedly risky but potentially high-impact ideas and paradigms.

Detailed Information on the project and the consortium can be found at the SoftPro project web site.
