In this program developments are taking place which have directly or indirectly to do with the human body. The program is composed of two parts: 1. Robotic Surgery in which new robotic instruments and methodologies are studied with projects like Teleflex and Miriam. 2. Prosthetics is related to the development or artificial limbs like transradial hand prosthesis (MyoPro) and transfemoral leg prosthesis.

This project aims at developing and exploiting actuation technologies for a new generation of robots that can co-exist and co-operate with people and get much closer to the human manipulation and locomotion performance than today’s robots do. At the same time these robots are expected to be safe,... read more
