Development of a sensor fusion method for AR-based surgical navigation

Current surgical navigation systems are mostly limited to displaying their results on external monitors in the vicinity of the patient, which forces the surgeon to switch between the displayed planning and the surgical site. Augmented reality (AR) devices reduce this problem by directly displaying the planning in the surgeon’s field…

MANADBS project

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has been widely accepted as an effective treatment for movement disorders such as Parkinson Disease (PD), essential tremor or dystonia. During DBS, high-frequency (mostly 130Hz) electrical stimulation is applied to disrupt the abnormal information flow using multi-contact electrodes implanted in the structures of the brain…

STABLE Project

Tremor is an involuntary, rhythmic muscle contraction leading to shaking movements and thus affecting daily life activities. Often people relate tremor with Parkinson’s disease. However, the cause of shaking body parts may be the result of other diseases or disorders like essential tremor, cerebellar, physiological, or psychogenic tremor. Over 22…
