INTER participated, October 13th 2016, at trade show Autonomia to support autonomy.
In summary, solutions presented by INTER's members in this video are :
OMNI : Omnidirectional motorized wheelchair developed by François Michaud's team, through IntRolab, and tested in real life with users and clinicians by François Routhier's team, from the CIRRIS/IRDPQ. This technology is helpful for transversal movements such as the one required in front of a counter or table and in limited spaces. For more information, please see the mandate #32B for researchers members of INTER or contact the researchers above.
COOK - Culinary Assistant : is a technology developed by DOMUS's team in collaboration of Nathalie Bier to assist people with cognitive difficulties during the preparation of their meals and to assure their safety when the Cooking is left unsupervised.This technology is already implanted in specialized residence, a unique infrastrcture in Canada, and used by his résidents. For more information, please contact the researchers above.
JACO : is robotic arm developed by Kinova. Many of INTER's members are working closely with this compagny to continue to improve his development such as the laboratory of Sofiane Achiche and Maxime Raison at Polytechnique of Montréal, whom is developing a stereovision control system for this technolgy. For more information, please see the mandate #55 for researchers members of INTER or contact the researchers above.
TEKILIBRE and TEKTRIS : is two video games developed by the Laboratory of Simulation and movement modelling (S2M) at University of Montréal to improve the equilibrum and movement control at low costs for users and clinicians. For more information, please contact the researcher above.
- CHOPLO : is a video game to improve equilibrum and postural control for people with sensorimotor deficiencies whom is adapted to their capacities and their progression. This technology is developed by the Gait Analysis Laboratory at the Marie-Enfant Rehabilitation Center, Sainte-Justine UHC in collaboration with S2M and CRCHUM/LIO.
