general notes

Kinarm

Kinesiological Instrument for Normal and Altered Reaching Movement (KINARM) is an interactive robotic device designed to assess sensorimotor and cognitive function through behavioral tasks using the upper limb.

At the Recovery and Performance Laboratory, we use the KINARM End-Point to help enhance our research in rehabilitation and effective recovery from neurodegenerative diseases. 

The Kinarm was funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Government of Newfoundland & Labrador.

fNIRS

Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) allows us to visualize how the brain is working while you are completing tasks like moving your hand or doing mental math.  fNIRS is a non-invasive tool used to measure brain activity in real-time. When a certain area of the brain becomes activated in response to a stimulus, more blood is sent to that area. 

The light systems attached to the fNIRS head cap can detect changes in blood flow throughout the surface of the brain, giving us information about brain activity every second. 

Our device is manufactured by NIRX (https://nirx.net/) and is funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Government of Newfoundland & Labrador.
