Welcome to the website of the Rehabilitation Engineering Lab (RELab), which is part of the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems (IRIS).
On January 1st, 2012, our lab joined the newly established Department of Health Sciences and Technology. We are excited to be a part of this new department, and also remain strongly committed to teaching, education and our collaborations within the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering.
Our research focuses on the development and clinical evaluation of diagnostic, therapeutic and assistive tools
in order to promote recovery, independence and social integration of the physically disabled. We are
especially interested in hand function, and how haptic feedback can benefit motor learning, rehabilitation therapy,
and human-machine interaction.
