RevEla Project

The revELA project emerged as a series of initiatives aimed at developing assistive technologies to improve the quality of life of patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). One of them was the first prototype of what would become the Autonomus system, which focused on enabling more autonomy for patients in the various stages of the disease.

RevELA comes from a partnership between the Laboratory for Technological Innovation in Health at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (LAIS/UFRN) and the Ministry of Health, in addition to collaboration with researchers from other institutions in Brazil and worldwide. Besides Autonomus itself, the revELA project provides for research and development of technological solutions in areas such as active and passive orthoses, motor and respiratory biorehabilitation, alternative communication technologies, automation and nutrition devices.
