During the week of 26-30 July 2021, researchers from Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona), Neural-Rehabilitation Group – CSIC (Madrid) and Gregorio Marañón Hospital (Madrid) performed experiments using state of the art intramuscular technology to validate in humans the use of high
EU EXTEND Projects researchers tested and compared the use of surface and intramuscular EMG measurements for the estimation of required joint torques using EMG driven modelling framework in healthy individuals and incomplete SCI patients.

The EXTEND Consortium held its second 2020 Annual Meeting on November 30th 2020. Due to the Corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic, this was a virtual Meeting. It was very productive and all partners discussed the next steps to be taken in
The EXTEND Consortium was represented at Society for Neuroscience (SfN2019) in Chicago. The PhD Student Alejandro Pascual Valdunciel (Neural Rehabilitation Group – CSIC) presented preliminary results of our experiments using afferent electrical stimulation to reduce tremor in Essential Tremor patients.
The EXTEND Consortium was represented at the 41st Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC). The PhD Student Alejandro Pascual Valdunciel (Neural Rehabilitation Group – CSIC) presented preliminary results demonstrating the ability of electrical
