Uniting kinesthetic and neural intelligence together Artificial intelligence It allows “faithful replication of human anatomy and movement”. This explains it for medical writing Alvaro Sanchez FerroCoordinator of the New Technologies Committee at Spanish Society of Neurology (SEN)after developing a new file Artificial intelligence platform for musculoskeletal models. The platform enables the advancement of rehabilitation and the creation of prosthetic limbs for patients. Advance, according to Sanchez Ferro, can be applied to humans within “three to seven years.”
This major advance, made by Meta, the company of Mark Zuckerberg, together with the University of Twente in the Netherlands, has multiple applications and among them is the “strength of Patients’ problems model and develop solutions that adapt to it.” Sanchez Ferro adds that this type of solution “could range from creating prosthetics that solve a specific disability due to amputation or injuries, to orthotics that help compensate for a problem in that part of the body.” The neurologist asserts that “it can be It helps in modeling the problems that the person suffers from, in addition to Individualizing rehabilitation treatments so that they are more accurate and successful“.
For a neurologist, this kind of advance means before and after medicine, who will be able to see the light “in a relatively quick period, less than three years, as long as the models work well and are used only as Medical decision support“.
Alvaro Sanchez: “The diseases most frequently used will be trauma, stroke and multiple sclerosis”
On the contrary, Sanchez Ferro points out that “if they are intended to be more specific systems so that Medical treatment and decisionsIt can take longer, usually three to seven years. “If desired” to be used with VR systems, it may take longer.”
Who are the patients who could benefit from this innovation?
Once this type of innovation reaches clinical practice, Sanchez Ferro explains that the main beneficiaries will be “people who have Muscle or bone injuries of any kindEspecially with regard to shock. Also patients with impaired movement due to cerebral infarctionAnd the multiple sclerosis or other neurological diseases”. Although for a neurologist this innovation is “completely generalizable to any disease”, it indicates that diseases “of greatest use would be trauma, cerebral infarction and multiple sclerosis“.
Meta MyoSuite platform.
A few words to add to it too Victor CaggianoMyoSuite Technical Program Director, who confirms medical writing that “at present, attempts are being made to replicate the general behavior of healthy humans. However, it has been shown that it may be possible Mimic the loss of muscle strength in the elderlyrupture of tendons or use of assistive devices.” In this sense, Caggiano asserts, it has “opened the door to the possibility of exploring these studies by enabling basic tools and this is only the first step to validating the models and personalizing them.”
Musculoskeletal models and artificial intelligence
This platform, called MyoSuite, makes it possible to distinguish between two parts: On the one hand, the Development of musculoskeletal models On the other hand, the The artificial intelligence that drives them. From there, Caggiano explains, “a simulation of the peripheral nervous system was developed Musculoskeletal simulation of human hand and elbow. This simulation allows us to understand the effect of muscle activation on movements and interactions with the environment. This is a difficult problem because, even for the simplest movement, you need to coordinate all the muscles together and continuously.”
Vittorio Caggiano: “It has been proven that artificial intelligence can learn by trial and error to perform the task assigned to it, resulting in smooth and coordinated movements”
Although for Caggiano “there is still very little knowledge about how intelligent motor behavior emerges and standardizes, it is possible to simulate the performance of humans Adaptive movements and learn new skillsVocational training that will be necessary to extend this knowledge to study Coping with trauma and diseaseMovement strengthening and rehabilitation in humans.
