Strengthen the autonomy of people with some type o f neuro-motor disability in the upper limbs.


E2REBOT is based on the integrated application of a wide spectrum of technologies for movement control and force interaction: mechatronics, virtual reality, haptic control, interfaces and bio-feedback. This project seeks to strengthen the autonomy of people with some type of neuro-motor disability, in the upper limbs.

This project monitors and integrates the physiological signals of the patient in the control loop of the neuro-rehabilitation robot. The physiotherapist could adjust the difficulty of the rehabilitation therapies that the patient should perform based on their experience, and the data “collected and analyzed” by the application that controls the neuro-rehabilitation robot.


  • Development of a new control system for robotic devices.
  • Biocooperative control (“biofeedback”).
  • Development of information management systems for physical and physiological variables.
  • Development, construction and implementation of a prototype robotic device for rehabilitation of upper limbs.

Expected Results

  • A new robot for rehabilitation of upper limb.
  • New control system that integrates haptic technology and bio-feedback.
  • New metrics for the follow-up of patients by physiotherapists.

The objective is to develop a new generation of Socio-Bio-Cooperative robotic devices based on haptic technology combined with the novel Socio-Bio-Cooperative control approach to robotic systems, which proposes to use the biophysical signals of the users to adapt their reaction to the user’s state.
