Stakes

  • According to data collected from 14 European centres in the Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy common database (Cans 2000), 30% of children with Cerebral Palsy is not able to walk at 5 years of age and 16% of the CP children need assistive devices to walk, while 54% can walk without aids (Beckhung et al. 2008).This means that 46% of the CP children might benefit from innovative technology like lower limb exoskeletons to promote walking.



OBJECTIVES


M.O.T.I.O.N addresses two challenges :
  • To advance development, validation and adoption of bionic rehabilitation technology for children with neurological disorders to improve quality of life.

  • To set up a transregional network to transfer this rehabilitation technology and related knowledge from research to practical application by linking with industry, healthcare professionals and users and to interact with policy makers for the creation of supportive frameworks.
