EMpowerment del PAzienTe In cAsa

The EMPATIA @ Lecco project aims to provide the patient and his family with new tools to cope with chronic disease, enhance his ability to deal with daily life, develop more aware and more suitable behaviors to manage the evolution of the disease at home, and to restore to the fragile subject the dignity of his person and a better quality of life. One of the objectives of the project is the creation of a shared and distributed laboratory (LILL-LAB), centered on the Campus of the Polo di Lecco of the Politecnico di Milano-CNR, which systematizes all the laboratories and skills of the partners in the vision of the Lecco Innovation Living Lab open to users, companies, other research institutions. LILL-LAB lays the foundations for the design, co-design and acquisition of the necessary technological-organizational and infrastructure equipment to develop a service mission that the system will be able to deliver to subjects, patients, companies and / or bodies / institutions.
Within the EMPATIA @ Lecco project, the activities of CNR-STIIMA are divided into the following thematic tables: realization of materials and / or cellular composites for robotic and orthotic components, development of robotic applications for the improvement of autonomy, development of a planar device variable stiffness for post-stroke neurorehabilitation and a prototype of a digital environment for the use of the robotic device in the home setting, development of a technological environment for the evaluation of mother-child interaction and to support rehabilitation in children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, digital environments for elderly patients with chronic respiratory diseases.
