Technology artificial and natural control assisted by electrical stimulation in functional transfers for subjects with disabilities after spinal cord injury Inria principal investigator: Christine Azevedo Coste International partner: Faculty of Ceilandia/ University of Brasilia - Emerson Fachin Martins, leader of the NTAAI-team. Nucleus of Assistive Technology, Accessibility and Innovation. CAPES, Scholarship: BEX 3160/13-0 (Montpellier/France - December 2013 - February 2015) CAPES, Appel: 88881.068134/2014-01 (2015 - 2017) Around 90 million people acquired disabilities from Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) worldwide. The op- tions available to stand up individuals with SCI without orthotics devices do not provide a functional upright position. The wheelchairs and seats to verticalize do not ensure an active participation based in a technology-human interaction. Moreover, the Verticalization devices are rarely used outside. The present international collaboration initiates a series of collaborations between the DEMAR- team and the NTAAI-team based on academic mobility of students and researchers. The general aim of this project is investigated technologies based in the functional electrical stimulation to promote functional transfers of the individuals with disabilities after SCI.
