Neurorehabilitation Technologies: Introduction and Applications (2 C; 1,5 SWS) [M.Bio.375]

Learning outcome: Students are able to describe the state of the art in Neurorehabilitation technologies and understand the basics of the related physiological processes. They are in a position to discuss and evaluate current trends as well as to recognize limitations of available assistive and (neuro)rehabilitation technology. The programming and lab exercises will allow students to address variety of
practical Neurorehabilitation challenges.
