The work of the INSH (Digital Interactions – Health and Handicap) is based on varied technological skills (virtual and/or augmented reality, robotics, connected objects, information systems and embedded systems), an expertise in Health and Handicap technologies and on a multidisciplinary collaborations network.

The INSH laboratory is lead by Evelyne Klinger, specialist in virtual reality-assisted therapies.

Research topics

The INSH laboratory’s work are about problems like ageing, brain damages, sensory impairments and development disorders that result in impairment on the cognitive, sensory or motor level as well as a loss of autonomy. Several scientific studies show the interest of virtual environments, connected tools ans embedded systems. It is all the more important as the current means available for readaptation and return to home and everyday activities are not sufficient.

This research process is lead in a consistent multidisciplinary approach based on a local partnerships network, both national and international. ESIEA is a member of the Federal Institute for Research on Handicap (FIRH), where Evelyne Klinger is responsible of one the interdisciplinary program, “Handicap and Virtual Reality”.

This research process goes along with a Health & Digital formation (NUMSAN) for ESIEA students in their 5th year.

The INSH’s research themes are :

1. Conception of methods and tools for :

  • management of disabilities
  • measurement of human activity
  • simulation for healthcare

2. Integration  of the digital technologies for the development :

  • of therapeutical / educational / informative tools
  • of sensory/ powered interfaces
  • of measurement devices

3. Awareness of a practice :

  • from Health Center to home
  • from child to senior

4. Validation of approaches :

  • with in situ tests
  • indicators extraction and creation of profiles
  • evaluation of interventions efficiency
  • study of the transfer of abilities in real life

In order to implement this resesarch dynamic, we can rely on those actions :

Thesis

  • “Apport de la réalité virtuelle dans l’évaluation de la cognition en cas de commotion cérébrale” – PhD Candidate: Yasaman Mofid – Thesis supervisors : Evelyne Klinger, ESIEA et Philippe DECQ, LBM-ENSAM – Starting Septembre 2014

Research Projects « from need to tool »

  • Explorative studies (existing practices, acceptability)
  • Industrial research projects (like ANR TecSan)
  • Hospital Projects de Clinical Research (PHRC)
  • Direct services (industrial partnerships)
  • Promotion (transfer)

Students Projects

  • Research and Innovation Talent
  • Scientific and technical projects

 

The team lead by Evelyne Klinger gathers several teachers-engineers, researchers and PhD candidates who also have a teaching role. It is open to  students showing promise both as scientists and researchers, with ESIEA’s “Research and Innovation Talent” scheme. It also welcomes interns.

Evelyne Klinger, Research Supervisor INSH

  • TELECOM ParisTech Engineer and PhD
  • Habilitaded to supervise research (HDR), Université de Bordeaux
  • Specialist in Virtual Reality-assisted therapies. Watch the video of one of her project (the ANR-TecSan AGATHE project)
  • ESIEA representative at the Steering Committee of the Federal Institute for Research on Handicap (FIRH)
  • Supervisor of the FIRH‘s Virtual Reality and Handicap program

5th year students choose a Major and a Minor linked to the Digital Interactions – Health and handicap laboratory.

5th year’s teaching allows student to go deeper into one of ESIEA’s area excellency. Two of them are directly linked to the INSH laboratory. 5th year students can choose between :

  • Virtual Reality Major, which aims to train engineers to modelling, processing and interpreting digital images for a better understanding  of the issues and principles of Virutal and Augmented Reality.
  • Digital Technologies and Healthcare Minor, is a user-oriented formation based on Computer Science, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Electronics and Embedded Systems. The subjects covered are : human functioning, handicap, systems in the service of humankind, conception et ergonomics.
