Morten Haugland (M.Sc.E.E. and Ph.D.) started his career as a researcher at the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction at Aalborg University in Denmark where he was employed for more than 10 years primarily working in the area of Functional Electrical Stimulation for reestablishment of muscle functions in neurological patients.
Since then Morten has in various roles gained a broad practical experience with most issues involved in the development of a commercial medical device all the way from the basic research idea until it is on the market.
Morten has practical experience with technical and clinical research in both university and commercial environments, including the performance of clinical trials according to GCP.
Technologies for the neurologically impaired motor system
We will present two different technologies to improve and monitor the progress of neurological patients.
One focuses on activation of the withdrawal reflex in the leg of stroke victims, where a dedicated stimulation device improves the training efficiency and the long-term outcome of gait training for the patients. The other is a device for objective measurement of active and passive muscle/joint stiffness and monitoring of developing spasticity in neurological patients.
