The Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) has determined the influence of the room color on the emotional state of the elderly in a retirement home, as well as on the improvement of their sense of direction and ambulation. Techniques based on the analysis of physiological response and eye tracking were used, which made it possible to obtain information about users in an objective and quantitative manner without interfering with their activities. The results showed the impact of color on the emotional response of the elderly, as well as the usefulness of the IBV techniques to obtain detailed information about emotional and cognitive responses, such as relaxation, stress or sense of direction.


The orthopedics sector is increasingly demanding and competitive. Patients suffering from osteoarthritis need solutions that improve their personal autonomy and mitigate the effects of the disease without losing autonomy and life quality. EMO and IBV have designed and developed a new generation of knee orthoses that adapt to the anthropometry and biomechanics of the users, considering the context of use, usability and the needs and preferences of both users and professionals. In order to achieve such an advanced solution, a multidisciplinary team and various laboratory studies were necessary to define the user-centered design and the development process.


The Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) is at the forefront of the digital technology for the anthropometric and biomechanical characterization of the human body thanks to the development of MOVE 4D, a high-precision and rapid scanning system for the body in motion. This system opens up new options for the advancement and development in such varied sectors as clothing, textiles, biomechanical assessment in health and sport, digital animation or video games.



After more than two years of research, the funding from the European Union and the efforts of seven organizations from 4 countries have made TELETURF possible. This training tool was created to improve the safety and quality conditions of artificial turf fields.
