EVL’s PARIS system demonstrated the possibilities for clinical rehabilitation of the human sensory-motor system at the 26th International RESNA Conference. Participants interacted with virtual objects using stereo vision and a haptic robot. The event highlighted the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center (RERC) launch into the public arena only after six months of operation.
RERC is chartered with developing an augmented reality (AR) system interfaced with a robot for training and rehabilitation purposes.
