Research Interests

Dr. Lonini’s research interests lie at the intersection of rehabilitation technologies and machine learning. He is currently investigating the use of machine learning techniques combined with wearable sensors / mobile phones to perform activity recognition in patients that use a prosthesis or orthosis. The goal is to continuously monitor the patient, both inside and outside the clinic, to evaluate the outcome of the therapy and patient mobility.
