About the Laboratory «Sensor-Tech»

The Laboratory has been established to develop new technologies and products for people with hearing and vision impairments (including deaf-blind persons) in Russia and in the world. The question area of research and developments encompasses such scientific and technology directions as bioengineering, biotechnical systems, nanoelectronics and electrotechnology, information and communication systems, neurology and neurophysiology, genetics as well as some other areas. Implementation of such projects can have a significant impact on successful socialization of deaf-blind people in Russia. The Laboratory has been founded by the Deaf-Blind Support Foundation So-edinenie (Con-nection).

Areas of work

Developments

Development of technical means of rehabilitation and establishment of accessible environment for deaf-blind persons.

Research

Advanced research on studying the phenomenon of deaf-blindness.

Rehabilitation

Developing solutions aimed at complex rehabilitation of disabled people with hearing and vision impairments.

Key projects

Ongoing research projects

Developing information-analytical systems for collecting and analyzing diagnostic data of deaf-blind patients and organizing experimental environment

The aim of the research work is to study the phenomenon of deaf-blindness using modern means of medical diagnosis and computer modelling and to establish experimental environment for further research.

Partner: Bauman Moscow State Technical University National Research University of Technology

Developing algorithms for visual information processing for people with hearing and visual disabilities

The aim of the research work is to create fundamentally new opportunities for disabled people with simultaneous hearing and visual impairments (deaf-blind persons) to self-navigate and live independently. The developed algorithms are based on Big Data working methods and artificial intelligence algorithms related to recognizing clear and unclear images.

Pattern: Moscow Technological University (MIREA)

Studying new methods of brainstem evoked potentials’ registration effectiveness in the patients with pathologies of hearing and visual organs

The aim is to increase the effectiveness of rehabilitation of patients with auditory and visual analyzers’ pathology.

Partner: FSBI «Federal Scientific Clinical Centre of Otorhynolaringology FMBA of Russia»

We participated in the conference "DEAFBLINDNESS AND RESEARCH: CREATING THE WEB OF KNOWLEDGE", organized by the Deafblind Foundation in Russia. It was a joint report of the Laboratory and "Oftalmic" company. We presented our research in the field of genetics, aimed at solving the problem of vision loss for deafblind people with Usher syndrome.

По проекту с имплантами сетчатки желающие обращаются со всех регионов. Из Челябинска сразу 4 хороших слепоглухих кандидата, поэтому специалисты Лаборатории на этой неделе отправились туда для проведения клинической диагностики. Благодарим компанию Центр зрения, на базе которой и были проведены все тесты. Скоро едем в Нижний Новгород.

Getting requests from deafblind people for participating to the retinal implant project from all regions of Russia. There were 4 good candidates from Chelyabinsk, so the Lab's specialists went there for clinical diagnosis. Very soon we're going to Nizhny Novgorod.

В начале апреля совместно с офтальмологическим отделением НКЦО провели плановые образовательные онлайн мероприятия с производителем ретинального имплантанта компанией Second Sight. Обсудили особенности функционирования импланта Argus II и этапы подготовки пациентов-претендетов. Также успели провести клиническое обследование первому добровольцу на проведение операции.

In the beginning of April the Lab. "Sensor-Tech with the specialists from the Ophthalmologic department of the Federal Scientific Clinical Centre of Otorhinolaryngology conducted several online meetings with Second Sight company, which is the developer of the Argus II retinal implant. We've discussed the functioning of the retinal implant, as well as the preparation of patients for this technology. We also managed to conduct a clinical examination of the first volunteer for the operation.
