Innovative Approach to Research

Due to the 3 high level systems that focus around understanding human behaviors, TESLASUIT is an excellent research tool which is currently being used by over 50 research institutes around the world. These projects vary from master’s and PhD projects at world renown universities to governmental and medical institutes. You can find TESLASUIT involved in aerospace, automotive, medical, defense, sporting, and behavioral science projects.

Advantages
of Using Teslasuit

  • Ability to record mocap data in any location in contrast with the optical system.
  • Ability to start work right away. In order to start work, it is enough to put on a suit, in comparison with optical systems in which markers must first be installed.
  • All systems in one device. Allows you to conduct research, clinical trials and application in medical practice using a single device.

Amsterdam Rehabilitation Research Centre Reade

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Reade clinics, Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Teslasuit have a long-term research relationship focused on various aspects of Teslasuit technology being used in people with a spinal cord injury or after-stroke rehabilitation. The main directions of common research activities are:

  • Prevention of secondary complications
    • Daily muscle activation during inpatient clinical rehabilitation
    • Teslasuit muscle activation to counteract hypotension in people with SCI
    • Daily muscle activation during ICU stay of critically ill patients
  • Restoration of Functioning
    • Daily muscle activation during inpatient clinical rehabilitation
    • Teslasuit muscle activation to counteract hypotension in people with SCI
  • Validation of Teslasuit systems with others being used in clinical practice

Results of the collaboration are presented during several scientific conferences/meetings and became a base for Master theses and scientific publications.

Hospital for Special Surgery Innovation Institute and Teslasuit are collaborating on the validation of core Teslasuit technologies and developing next-generation wearable technologies for monitoring, and rehabilitation in clinical and remote care.​

Results of the collaboration are presented during several scientific conferences/meetings and became a base for Master theses and scientific publications.

Technical University of Darmstadt

Darmstadt, Germany

The researchers from Technische Universität Darmstadt propose a method for movement assessment using Teslasuit, a full-body haptic motion capture suit. They train probabilistic movement models using the data of 10 inertial sensors to detect exercise execution errors. Additionally, they provide haptic feedback, employing transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation immediately, as soon as an error occurs, to correct the movements.

The results based on a dataset collected from 15 subjects show that the approach can detect severe movement execution errors directly during the workout and provide haptic feedback at respective body locations. These results suggest that a haptic full-body motion capture Teslasuit is promising for movement assessment and can give appropriate haptic feedback to the users so that they can improve their movements.

New virtual reality flight simulators propel aerospace engineering research

Auburn University is home to possibly the world’s first set of motion-based virtual reality flight simulators to be used for research in an academic institution. Extended Reality Flight Simulation and Control Lab, led by Assistant Professor Dr. Umberto Saetti, is currently working on the solution to be completed with the Teslasuit's haptic feedback system.

The haptic feedback system will be used to provide pilots with important information by feel on the body.  Some of the applications that the researchers are focusing on to cue a sensation on the body when the aircraft is being chased so the pilot knows the relative position, velocity, and acceleration of the other aircraft. This doesn’t increase the workload on the pilot, and he or she can keep his or her eyes on the gauges or skies, using the stimulation on the body to locate or escape from other aircraft.

Combining haptics with VR to support professional identity development in student pharmacists through empathy for patients

A team of investigators at Auburn University is taking an innovative approach to training health care students on disease states and patient education by engaging in immersive virtual reality experiences. The project combines virtual reality and haptic devices to expose students to various physical limitations patients may experience.

The project will focus on joint immobility in the first iteration with plans to expand to other physical limitations, such as tremor, vision impairment and hearing loss. TESLAGLOVE will help create a realistic feeling of joint immobility by providing forced feedback to make grasping and manipulating objects more difficult. Students can attempt to carry out various tasks, like opening a pill bottle or using an inhaler wearing the gloves, to experience the hardships their patients might experience.

Universität Heidelberg, ARIES Laboratory

Heidelberg, Germany

Technologies designed and developed entirely by the ARIES Lab team, known in the scientific community under the name of "exosuit", are able to assist the user's movements by generating a torque on the user's joints in a way that closely resembles the way natural muscles work.

A full-body haptic Teslasuit, combined with the solutions developed by the ARIES Lab team, has the potential to open a world of possibilities in various applications that can promote the integration of sensory modalities during its use in virtual simulations combined with exosuits. In addition, due to its knowledge and experience in the field of haptics, the ARIES lab aims to increase feedback during virtual reality experiences, using the suit combined with a commercial 3D viewer.

Power of Technology

Mocap system

Using mocap system, medical researchers will be able to record movements and analyze angular mechanics data, which implies the following:

  • Analysis of biomechanical movements and evaluation of its progress;
  • Analysis of movement dynamics/changes and its patterns;
  • Analysis and identifying of pathological patterns;

Using mocap system, medical researchers will be able to record movements and analyze angular mechanics data, which implies the following:

EMS

Using EMS (Electrical muscle stimulation), muscle groups contracts and it improves the circulation and blood flow in the areas of the body, in which electrical impulses have been applied. This will allow medical researchers to conduct appropriate research (example: research, therapy, prevention of bedsores)

TENS

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is one of the methods of electrical stimulation, which can help medical research professionals conduct research related to the ability of TENS technology to provide a degree of symptomatic pain relief by exciting sensory nerves.

FES

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a technique that uses low-energy electrical pulses to artificially generate body movements. Teslasuit, in turn, makes it possible to create FES stimulation models, algorithms and control systems, where all systems (Mocap, EMS, TENS, Biometry) need to be used. Thus, medical researchers will be able to conduct their research and create necessary monitoring systems within one device, which will allow to accelerate their work on them, scale them up to clinical trials and further use in medical practice.

Biometry

PPG system, which is built in Teslasuit, can provide information about the user's cardiorespiratory system state. Using data, obtained from the PPG sensor, our technology calculates the user's BPM and spO2 ratio. Moreover, the system provides consecutive cardiocycle duration data that can be used for HRV analysis.

SDK

All of the above costume features are available to users using the Python/C++ API and Unity3d/Unreal Engine plugins we provide.

Using the APIs, users can use all of the devices' available features through 3d party software. At the same time as Teslasuit plugins for Unity3d/Unreal Engine will greatly simplify the work of integration and content creation for specialists.
