The program CQFD broadcasted by the RTS la 1ère reports on the development of a research chair by the EPFL-Valais in the field of clinical neuro-engineering, located in the Clinique romande de réadaptation (CRR). With the development of this new division, the Valais is becoming a flagship in the domain of neuro-rehabilitation research.
In this division two key people explain the next steps and the possibility of improvements for patients : Professeur Friedhelm Hummel (director of the EPFL-CRR chair) who will lead the clinical research, mainly based on magnetic and electronic non invasive stimulation technologies, and Dr Philippe Vuadens (head physician of the neurological rehabilitation department of the CRR) who will then serve as a link between these clinical results and patients themselves.
