Ongoing PhD Thesis

Artificial Intelligence and Immersive Systems Techniques for Precision Physical Rehabilitation

Cristian Gómez Portes

The main goal of this PhD Thesis is the development of a technological platform, together with methodological guidelines, based on Artificial Intelligence to provide precision rehabilitation, taking into account the psycho-social dimension and the need for natural interaction methods that increase the patient’s autonomy. It proposes a co-creation and participation approach between patients and clinicians, in which the participants involved work together to personalise the patient’s rehabilitation process

Adaptive upper limb rehabilitation methods based on artificial intelligence and immersive techniques

Vanesa Herrera Tirado

The thesis focuses on the development of an immersive virtual reality system for upper limb rehabilitation in spinal cord injury patients. This patient-centred system, using serious games designed in collaboration with rehabilitation experts, aims to improve rehabilitation and dexterity while removing physical barriers. Patients interact with the virtual environment using their hands, and detailed kinematic data is collected for objective assessment and customisation of training. The system facilitates cloud-based sharing between hospitals and patients and uses AI techniques to identify incorrect movements and configuration errors in the virtual environment, providing a comprehensive rehabilitation approach. Continuous feedback from both real patients and specialists at the National Hospital for Paraplegics in Toledo contributes to the continuous improvement and effectiveness of the system.

Supporting small businesses and local economies through a e-commerce platform based on Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence

Rubén Grande Muñoz

The aim of the thesis is to design, develop and study the impact of an e-commerce platform based on virtual reality on the consumption habits of users. platform based on virtual reality on the consumption habits of users. This platform will be aimed at boost local economies and help the digitalisation of small businesses with technologies that will mark the next years in the field of e-commerce. will mark the coming years in the field of e-commerce. In addition, it is expected to study how it affects purchasing decisions of consumers and the process followed to make purchases through the use of virtual reality. For the enhancement of local economies, we will study and design the generation of cultural and leisure plans based on the preferences of the users, the attractions of the towns and the context of these as context of these as promotions or temporary offers. These plans will be associated with the option of products purchased at collection points.
