Researchers from VU Amsterdam and TU Delft have set up a van to be used to measure the brain patterns of stroke patients. With this van, they visit patients in rehabilitation centres, nursing homes or at home. The van is equipped with EEG (electroencephalogram) equipment that measures brain activity, plus a robot-controlled handle.
Researchers want to investigate how patterns in the brain change during recovery while certain motor tasks are carried out. Prof. Frans van der Helm (biorobotics at 3mE) is running the research from TU Delft, known as the 4D-EEG project.
