  • BCI-LIFT: an Inria Project-Lab Participants : Mitsuhiro Hayashibe, Saugat Bhattacharyya.

    BCI-LIFT is a large-scale 4-year research initiative (2015-2018) which aim is to reach a next generation of non-invasive Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), more specifically BCI that are easier to appropriate, more efficient, and suit a larger number of people. We work on BCI-FES study for promoting motor learning.

  • ADT PersoBalance2

    Participants : Mitsuhiro Hayashibe, Philippe Fraisse.

    A half-year engineer was funded by Inria ADT on "Personalized Balance Assessment in Home Rehabilitation, version2 (PersoBalance2)".

  • Project INTENSE 2012-2018

  • Leader: LIVANOVA

  • Partners: LTSI, INRA Rennes, CEA LETI, HEGP, CHU Rennes, MXM-Axonic, 3D+

  • the aim of the project is to treat severe obesity and cardiac failure through Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS). Our contirubution concerned the development of innovative hardware and software architecture to allow for selective stimulation. We developped the models that were used to optimize the settings of the stimulators taking into account the geometry of the 12-pole neural electrode. The selectivity and the efficacy of the stimulation were also improved through the study of original stiumulus waveforms. As a whole the idea was to further enhance the therapy while limiting the side effects that VNS my induce.

  • the cardiac application stops end of august due to internal decisions at LIVANOVA but the obesity application continues to be investigated.
