In the innovation center of the Tashkent Pediatric Medical Institute, a two-day training was held within the framework of the Erasmus + program on the Tech Rech project.

November 30 to December 1, a two-day training was held on working with equipment provided by BTS bioengineering. The training was conducted by leading experts in the field of bioengineering Filippo Pellizari, Giuseppe Ghidoli (Italy, Milan).

Specialists from TashPMI, TUIT and TUIT branch in the city of Karshi were invited to the training.

BTS was founded in 1986 as a spin-off company derived from the Bioengineering Center of the "Don Gnocchi Foundation" (a not-for-profit rehabilitation organization) and the "Politecnico di Milano" Technical University, and is now a private industrial concern working in medical devices’ technology. Focused since the its early days on the world of scientific research, BTS has created and developed solutions for clinics, hospitals, universities and sports medicine research centers, and is today proud of its vast experience and thorough knowledge in the development of integrated solutions for the analysis of movement. A team of young people, lead by high-profile managers, is building on a long standing tradition of excellence, developing accurate, flexible, reliable and innovative products.

On the first day of the training the specialists discussed the following issues:

- Motion Capture analysis (SMART DX 100), system set – up and calibration, clinical protocols application

- Nirvana

SMART DX is our optoelectronic systems product line designed to satisfy all motion analysis requirements in clinical, sports and industrial fields. All models use digital cameras equipped with powerful infrared illuminators to guarantee exceptional performance even in the most adverse conditions.

NIRVANA is a medical device based on virtual reality specifically designed to support motor rehabilitation in patients with neuromotor disorders.

It speeds up the rehabilitation process by supporting therapists’ choices on the most appropriate activity for the recovery of every patient’s impaired motor function.

It’s a totally non-invasive system functioning in a realistic environment. It uses neuro-sensory stimulation and adapts the level of difficulty of each exercise to the patient’s newly acquired abilities, in real time.

Since the training took place in a specially equipped laboratory with all the above mentioned systems, each participant after the coffee break had the opportunity to test the systems and apply the knowledge gained in the first half of the day of our training.

The second day of the training was even more intensive and informative, experts Filippo Pellizari, Giuseppe Ghidoli discussed the following issues:

- G – sensor stand alone
- Clinical protocol application
- G – sensor + EMG
- Clinical protocol application 

G-sensor introduces a new approach to motion analysis: a special wireless sensor applied to the patient enables you to perform clinical tests such as the “Timed Up and Go” and the “6 Minutes Walking Test” in no time, it also supplies the most relevant parameters related to walking, running, and jumping.
This evaluation, which is essential in the ambit of rehabilitation, helps physicians and specialists to assess patient conditions and quantify the efficacy of treatments and/or rehabilitation therapies. Fast, simple and accurate evaluation of motor problems. G-WALK can supply all the main data needed for the clinical analysis of a patient in a few seconds. The six included tests can be easily performed and results compared right away with normal ranges.

Electromyography device with wireless probes for the dynamic analysis of muscle activity. FREEEMG is a 4G technology device for surface EMG analysis. Signal accuracy, absence of wires, lightness and reduced size of the probes are the features which enable us to perform analyses of any type of movement, for each body part, without altering in any way the motor gesture of the analyzed subject. Thanks to our wireless miniaturized probes even the weakest signals will be detected and accurately captured. The system communicates with a PC through the supplied USB receivers and can manage up to 20 probes simultaneously. Each probe is equipped with internal memory to ensure uninterrupted recording in case of temporary connection loss and to allow for acquisitions in wide spaces and open fields. In order to get the signal, the probes will be directly hooked to the pre-gelled electrodes, with no need of additional fastening: subject preparation has never been so quick. The software elaborates the collected information and generates graphical results allowing the immediate comparison to the normal classes.
A large variety of predefined analysis protocols allow us to assess muscle activity during specific exercises.

In the afternoon the training was continued in a practical manner, the participants were able to test the system. Filippo Pellizari, Giuseppe Ghidoli answered all questions that arose during the training. In conclusion, representatives of the Tashkent Pediatric Medical Institute prepared small national presents for guests, devoting them to oriental customs and traditions.
