The conference, organized under the CSIC’s What We Know initiative, will highlight the enormous importance that robotics have had in the care and rehabilitation of neuromuscular diseases, such as stroke or multiple sclerosis.
A type of disease that affects adults and children, with 17 million minors in the world suffering from diseases such as muscular dystrophy, dystrophy or cerebral palsy.
