I want to ask you a question back for my curiosity….
As you want to simulate the human brain and its reaction to rehabilitation, what kind of variables do you use regarding the fact that stroke patients might need some specific rehabilitation for mobility?
Women have a higher average age (appr. 75 years for women and 68 years for men in Germany) when suffering a stroke. Also, what might an important factor for your research, women tend to have a degree of disabilities (especially regarding mobility) that is in average higher than that of men who suffered from a stroke - And so, women stay longer in rehab than men.
Can OpenSim, ROS and Gazebo be used to simulate patients with different outcomes of strokes, that will be relevant for rehab? Have you thought about considering this in your research?
