Our R&D background

Biomechanical Solutions, founded in 2004, started getting involved with R&D projects in 2008. Since then we have been successful in winning RTD contracts at regional and European level. On top of collecting and understanding physiological signals from movement analysis, we provide state of the art solutions in the area of signal processing and sensor integration. Our collaborated members of staff have an outstanding research background and experience. Our close collaboration with other research and technology developers promotes our combined ideas into funded projects that will have a direct impact in the quality of life

Our Research Projects

2016-2019 Muscle Stress-Relief

Horizon2020, EU
A variety of stress signals put striated muscles at risk of impairing their contractile functions. Early recognition of this process is clinically important because once in place, muscle inactivity many further aggravate in an ongoing vicious cycle of inactivity and muscle wasting. MUSCLE STRESS-RELIEF will develop novel detection methods for the early diagnosis & efficacious monitoring of muscle stress, and to make them commercially available. The diagnostic approaches and expertise generated here will also provide possibilities to monitor therapeutic strategies, i.e. how muscle can be relieved from stress activation.

2015-2018 Scaffy

Horizon2020, EU
Obesity and cardio-metabolic disease represent major health problems with vast impacts on the European healthcare systems. Recent advances in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine can be used to design novel techniques aiming to boost human metabolism; thus being promising candidates for human metabolic disease treatment. However, the development of these techniques requires the creation of new technology and knowledge in chemistry, biomaterials, toxicology, physiology, molecular biology as well as business management and marketing. SCAFFY will create an effective intersectoral co-operation between academia institutions and SMEs to advance the concept of bio-scaffold for brown adipose tissue regeneration.

2015-2018 SmartHelmet

Horizon2020, EU
Bicycle helmets are a tremendously important asset against head injuries during accidents. However, their normal use is often associated with strong thermal discomfort due to the (thermally) insulating nature of the materials used in their structures. This affects directly the willingness to wear helmets, which has direct implications in terms of the risk to which riders are exposed to. SmartHELMET will put together research expertise and resources from three large academic partners with market, commercialization and innovation experience from three SMEs, to exchange knowledge through intersectoral staff secondments. The project will bridge research initiatives between the academic and industrial sectors, creating long-term cooperation between them, while raising society awareness about its implications for citizens.

2013-2016 RetourThessaly (completed)

GSRT, Greece
Although relatively unknown in Greece, remedial and rehabilitation tourism is one of the industry’s more advanced and recent segments, which has already succeeded in attracting an increased interest from various scientific and commercial sectors. RETOURTHESSALY built a user friendly e-tourism platform which will effectively accommodated the project’s requirements, developed exercise programmes specific for the needs of each group of patients aiming at improving their physical/medical condition and organised service certification of third parties (i.e. hotels, restaurants, taxi, haemodialysis centres, e.t.c.).

2014-2015 Wishoe (completed)

FP7, EU
Gait parameters monitoring and energetic expenditure (EE) calculation is of high importance for patients recovering from diseases that affect movement (e.g. stroke). Currently, gait parameters’ monitoring is made either using the physicians experience or specialised equipment that, apart from being expensive, requires the subject to wear a belt with a data acquisition system and cables running on his legs. The Wi-Shoe project developed a completely non-invasive wearable shoe-based system for measuring gait parameters and EE during walking by integrating miniature sensors in a custom designed sole for different shoe types.

2012-2015 TibialRotator (completed)

GSRT, Greece
Tibial rotation is linked with ACL injury. Until today most clinical assessments of the knee conditions are performed using the KT-1000 which measures only tibial translation. TIBIALROTATOR developed a low cost device to measure tibial rotation for pre-post ACL injury funcional assessment.
