Research projects


This European research project focuses on alternative treatment options in physiotherapeutic rehabilitation after orthopedic surgery in hospitals during a pandemic. Among other things, the aim is to measure the benefit of the world's first mobile robot for autonomous gait training on crutches in pandemic situations.This European research project aims to develop the world's first mobile robot for autonomous gait training on crutches to address pandemic and post-pandemic challenges in orthopedic rehabilitation.

The study will be conducted at four major European acute care and rehabilitation clinics.
