Seventy-five percent of the patients with hemiplegia who have undergone tests at the Hospital of Alicante with a robotic arm or exoskeleton have managed to move it through a brain interface. Participating in this project, called Brain2Motion, are researchers from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), the Cajal Institute at the Spanish National Research Council of Madrid, and the Hospital of Alicante. This system is an improvement for the patients, as they are involved cognitively to carry out the movement, and they are capable of moving the affected limb voluntarily.
