Embedded Med

The goal of Embedded Med is to promote functional motor recovery after a stroke by creating continuously wearable “sensory substitution” technologies that re-establish real-time kinesthetic feedback control over the insensate contralesional limbs. By delivering supplemental feedback to other body parts, the brain retains the ability to process feedback. These intelligent wearable technologies will promote recovery by sensing the state of the body and its physical surroundings, synthesizing real-time sensory feedback optimized to achieve control goals, and delivering the feedback in an inconspicuous way that does not interfere with other critical behaviors such as speaking and eating.
