iFeel

Next step in continuous human health monitoring

We aim at providing an integrated platform that enables real-time human health monitoring in terms of motion tracking, articular stress monitoring, and fatigue analysis.

We are a spinoff of the Dynamic Interaction Control lab at the Italian Institute of Technology.

Based on our extensive and in depth research analysis we developed ground breaking technology.

The combination of iFeel wearable devices and the power of iFeel algorithms gave birth to a stunning new technology: whole-body wearable technology for real-time fatigue analysis to prevent human musculoskeletal diseases by enhancing ergonomic user experience.

Think of a suit equipped with iFeel wearable devices, sensorized shoes and flexible . The output is transferred to the iFeel AI algorithm, which is able to:

  • track human motions
  • analyse the fatigue in the back-end
  • provide the user with the feedback through the interface

Case studies

Industrial field

We carried out a deep research in diverse fields such as industry and it came to light that the only monitoring tool consisted of a manual and visual inspection at an industrial site. This process has been used for more than 200 years and results are not effective since a visual inspection is only the tip of the iceberg. Try to think about the huge amount of economic resources spent on (MSDs) treatment and just imagine what would happen, thanks to our technology, we were able to prevent human fatigue and bring about immediate action.

Rehabilitation field

The lack of quantitative analysis is not only common in the industrial field, but also in the rehabilitation process in case of gait disorders and prosthesis implementation. The rehabilitation process expects the patient to refer to a rehabilitation center where monitoring takes place. However, those centers are costly and not easily nor always accessible. Notwithstanding these issues, a quantitative and continuous monitoring is still missing. What if we were able to provide patients and rehabilitation professionals with a and easy-to-use technology? And what if this new technology was able to continuously monitor the changes in their rehabilitation process and optimize it based on their needs? In this way the rehabilitation process can be completely tailored on the patient’s needs.

Team


Our founding team is a group of professionals with diverse backgrounds in research and development both in industry and academia. We strongly believe that our team is not only the sum of single skills but a real integration. We are a multi-cultural, multilingual and team and we all share a passion for technological development and innovation focused on the being.

Daniele Pucci

Daniele Pucci received the bachelor and master degrees in Control Engineering with highest honors from ”Sapienza”, University of Rome, in 2007 and 2009, respectively. In 2009, he also received the ”Academic Excellence Award” from Sapienza. In 2013, he earned the PhD title with a thesis prepared at INRIA Sophia Antipolis, France, under the supervision of Tarek Hamel and Claude Samson. From 2013 to 2017, he has been a postdoc at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) working within the EU project CoDyCo. Since August 2017, he is the head of the Dynamic Interaction Control (DIC) lab. The main DIC lab research focus is on the humanoid robot locomotion problem, with specific attention on the control and planning of the associated nonlinear systems. Recently, the DIC Lab is pioneering Aerial Humanoid Robotics, a new branch of Robotics envisioning jet-powered flying humanoid robots. Daniele Pucci is also the principal investigator of the H2020 European Project AnDy and the coordinator of the joint lab between Honda Japan and IIT. In December 2019, Daniele was awarded as Pioneer of the Year Under 35 Europe from the MIT Technology Review magazine. He's now coordinating the newborn ergoCub project with INAIL aiming at developing new wearable technologies and humanoid robots to support humans in different fields.
