|Contract Nr. 128/2.06.2010, SMIS code 12271, Project ID 567|
The main objective of the project is the launching of the workforce CERVA (Research in Virtual and Augmented Reality) as a nucleus of cutting-edge scientific and technological competence in the haptic research field, at international standards, as part of Ovidius University. The objective will be achieved by transferring the scientific and technical expertise from Dr. Felix G. Hamza-Lup, expert in the design and development of user interfaces with haptic-feedback (i.e. tactile retroaction) and their usage in medical training and patient rehabilitation, to the Ovidius University team. Specifically, the project is oriented towards simulation applications in the medical field, especially in surgeon training and applications for medical rehabilitation (e.g. motor rehabilitation of patients after strokes or other accidents which have affected the motor system).
The contribution of the project in meeting these objectives is:
