Superior University Receives Prestigious Research Grant for Groundbreaking Robotic Rehabilitation Project


Lahore, June 5, 2024 – Superior University is proud to announce that Prof. Dr. Arfan Jaffar, Dean of the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, has been awarded a prestigious research grant of Rs. 3,518,000 by the Pakistan Science Foundation. The grant will fund the innovative project titled “Innovative Robotic Rehabilitation System for Upper Limb Motor Impairment: Robo-litation.”

This pioneering project aims to revolutionize the field of rehabilitation for individuals with upper limb motor impairments by leveraging cutting-edge technology. The core components of the Robo-litation system include:

  1. AI-powered Wearable Glove: This advanced glove is designed to capture and translate hand movements into robotic actions, enabling users to perform assisted rehabilitation exercises effectively. The AI technology embedded in the glove ensures precise and adaptive responses to individual user needs, promoting more efficient and targeted rehabilitation.
  2. Mobile Application: Complementing the wearable glove, the Robo-litation mobile app serves as a comprehensive guide for users. It offers step-by-step instructions for exercises, tracks progress over time, and facilitates remote monitoring by healthcare professionals. This feature ensures continuous support and adjustment of rehabilitation protocols, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the therapy.

Prof. Dr. Arfan Jaffar expressed his gratitude for the recognition and support from the Pakistan Science Foundation. “This grant enables us to explore innovative solutions that can significantly improve the quality of life for individuals with upper limb motor impairments. The Robo-litation system has the potential to transform rehabilitation practices by making them more accessible, efficient, and personalized.”

The Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology at Superior University has a strong commitment to advancing research and development in cutting-edge technologies. This project underscores the university’s dedication to creating impactful solutions that address real-world challenges.
