II All-Russian Conference “Rehabilitation Based on Neurotechnologies”

On December 13, the second scientific All-Russian conference “Rehabilitation based on neurotechnologies” dedicated to the research of rehabilitation equipment, which works on the basis of the brain-computer interface, took place in our University.

“Today we will share our experience, summarize the results of some studies, perhaps get proposals for improving neurotechnologies in the rehabilitation process. It is very important to note that the union of practice and science is already yielding significant results: if earlier we talked about the use of neurotechnology only for post-stroke patients, now the scope is expanding - we have taken a course on pediatrics, are working with patients with cerebral palsy and are already getting results ” , - the conference was opened by the head of the Department of Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine and Physical Culture of the University professor Boris Polyaev.

At the conference, reports were made by invited experts from the Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology, Moscow Regional Research Clinical Institute, Pavlov Institute of Physiology, Research Institute of Cerebrovascular Pathology and Stroke, Belarus Republican Scientific and Practical Center for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Crimean Federal University named after Vernadsky , Russian Children's Clinical Hospital of our University, Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry.

At the conference, the results of using the brain-computer neurointerface technology in children and post-stroke patients were announced, the experience of working with the Exokist-2 rehabilitation complex was discussed, and the prospects for its use were discussed. At the end of the conference, a demonstration of the work of “Exokist-2”, controlled by mental teams, took place.
