The Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory applies robotics, wearable sensor technologies and non-invasive neuroimaging to the exploration, assessment and restoration of sensorimotor function. Our goal is to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying sensorimotor impairment and recovery, in order to promote the latter following neurological injury. A further focus is on the development of assistive technologies for the compensation of remaining deficits, both motor and sensory.
The lab pursues three research lines:
- Explore: application of engineering tools to the investigation of mechanisms underlying sensorimotor control and recovery following neurological injury
- Assess: development and validation of technological tools for the quantitative and sensitive characterization of sensorimotor impairments
- Restore: development and clinical validation of novel therapeutic and assistive tools
