Promobilia foundation will finance two research positions (a PhD student
and a Post-doc) to join this new laboratory at the Department of
Signals and Systems, Chalmers University of Technology.
The aim of the Promobilia Foundation is to promote the development of technical aids
so that disabled persons could benefit from a more active life. Its aim is also to support scientific rese
arch that in the long run will benefit the disabled persons.
“The purpose of the Biomechatronics and Neurorehabilitation
Laboratory is to resear
ch and develop technologies to restore quality of life after traumatic events that led to amputations or motor impairments. Our research is strongly based on the decoding
of motor volition via myoelectric patte
and neuromuscular interfaces. We enjoy
working on biomedical instrumentation, bioelectric signals processing, machine learning, biomechatronics, and human-machine interfacing. We also investigate virtual and augmented reality as a tool to provide timely and appropriate visual feedback. We are as interested in understanding the basic mechanisms of motor control, perception and their pathologies, as in translating biom
edical engineering technologies to help patients in need" said Assist. Prof. Ortiz Catalan.The
