Investing in the future
Innovation means for us to work together with leading scientific partners worldwide, so as to provide the products and solutions of tomorrow. Therefore, we actively participate in various research projects:
VReha - Virtual Worlds for Diagnostics and Therapy
The aim of the funding project is to further develop possibilities of virtual reality that those people affected can solve tasks in computer-animated 3D worlds. Therefore, cognitive deficits are to be better recorded and treated closer to everyday life. The project consists of software developers from the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin, cognitive and neuroscientists from the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, neurologists and neuropsychologists from Charité Berlin and the University Hospital Leipzig and HASOMED. HASOMED's task is to further develop RehaCom modules so that they can be used for virtual reality. The focus is on the preparation and presentation of the results. HASOMED takes over the project management.

The aim of the project is to develop a home training system for the therapy of cognitive disorders for patients after stroke and traumatic brain injury. A prototype is being created as part of a joint project between HASOMED GmbH and the Department for Simulation and Graphics (Faculty of Computer Science/Computational Visualistics) at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. This is preceded by extensive technical and neuropsychological scientific analyses and research concerning the use of computers with affected persons and patients with cognitive disorders in the home environment. The system is tested on test persons and patients in partner clinics such as the University Hospital Leipzig with its Clinic for Cognitive Neurology. The project management lies with HASOMED.
The RehaCom@Home project is funded by Investitionsbank Sachsen-Anhalt.
The aim of the RETRAINER proposal is to tune and validate advanced, robot-based technologies to facilitate recovery of arm and hand function in stroke survivors and to verify extensively the use of the system by end-users. RETRAINER allows the users to use their own arm and hand as much and as soon as possible after the trauma so to achieve the best outcomes in rehabilitation. A continuous iterative process between the technology development and the testing feedback drives the whole project. RETRAINER implements a full technology transfer from the results of a previous FP7 project, MUNDUS, aimed at setting up a similar assistive device for severely disabled people in daily life activities.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 644721. About RETRAINER »
