eXprt: Exoskeleton and Wearables Enhanced Prevention and Treatment

eXprt develops a robotic exoskeleton to assist individuals with impaired hand function. Furthermore, using neuroimaging methods, eXprt will examine the neuroplastic adaptations that come with the use of the exoskeleton. Additionally, via wearable technologies, eXprt will use state-of-the-art machine learning methods to analyse everyday behavior in larger cohorts to learn about how to best improve prevention, outcome, and secure independency in daily life.


The Innovation Network eXprt brings together a multidisciplinary team to create a synergy of engineering, neuroscience, and clinical neurology to develop wearable technologies. The project provides tools to sensitively identify sensorimotor and cognitive impairments in everyday life. Through the power of neuroengineering, the results of eXprt will efficiently compensate for lost motor function and, therefore, prevent deterioration and improve the quality of life of individuals in need.
