The Bomotech project

Development of a
rehabilitation support system

The Bomotech project is a startup project of Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (Inria).
Holded by two engineers of the STARS research team of the Sophia Antipolis center, the aim of this project if to help caregivers and patients to improve the rehabilitation process.

Thanks to a computer vision based system (camera and algorithms for people and human motion detection), we want to provide a simple and efficient tool for quantitative and visual evaluation of the performance of patients during their rehabilitation.


The first prototype

Developped in collaboration with the Centre Hélio Marin (CHM) of Vallauris (France)

In order to insure the coherence between the developped system and the everyday habits of caregivers, we are actually developping our system in collaboration with Dr. Dominik Lee of the CHM of Vallauris. A video of demonstration of the prototype used in this rehabilitation center is shown here.


The team

The team is composed of two engineers :

Baptiste Fosty (left) : CEO and project holder

Mélaine Gautier (right) : CTO and project holder

  • R&D engineer in Inria between 2008 and 2015
  • Signal processing, robotic and software development (Odin project)

This team is also supported by François Brémond, head of the STARS research team as scientific consultant, and by Dr. Dominik Lee, Doctor in Médecine Physique et Réadaptation at the Centre Hélio Marin as medical consultant.
