News and events
Meet the members of Neuromechanics and Rehabilitation Technology at the following events:
Prof. Roger Enoka Visit
Prof. Roger Enoka visitied Neuromechanics and Rehabilitation Technology group on April 26. Having met group members, bio-signal processing algorithms by Prof. Farina and Dr. Barsakcioglu.
A week in Vienna
Our team members, Dr. Ivan Vujaklija and Dr. Silvia Muceli, visited Christian Doppler Laboratory for Reconstruction of Extremity Function led by Prof. Dr. Oskar Aszmann in order to conduct joint experiments on high density EMG recording.
"The Bionic Man"
Prof. Dario Farina gave a talk during 2017 Imperial Festival programme showcasing the latest bionic limbs, and discussing the obstacles to further progress. He presented the robotic technology that can already reproduce missing human limbs for near complete dexterity and proposed that in the not too distant future even surpass our own biological potential; while adding the need for probing deeper into our own nervous system, along with advances in robotics, in order to create a human-machine interface that truly creates a sense of natural control of movement. In addition to imagining a future of not just amazing bionic limb performance, he also posed ethical questions and asking what happens when people start demanding robotic arms over their own healthy ones.
