Subject of course

Rehabilitation engineering is “the application of science and technology to ameliorate the handicaps of individuals with disability”. Such handicaps can be classified into motor, sensor, and cognitive (also communicational) disabilities.

The goal of this lecture is to present classical and new rehabilitation engineering principles and practical applications.
