Summary

 

Human Centred Design of Assistive and Rehabilitation Devices (PG) - BIOE96069

Aims

 The ageing population and the wish to improve life quality, as well as the economic pressure to work longer, require the development of intuitive and efficient assistive and rehabilitation devices. Rehabilitation technology illustrates the paradigm for emergent systems to work with humans. As exemplified by the iPhone, the success of such systems depends on an intuitive interface, an attractive design and game-like applications. Students will learn to design rehabilitation systems and assistive devices, integrating mechatronics, human factors and computer games.

Role

Course Leader

Human Neuromechanical Control and Learning (UG) - BIOE97120

Aims

This module will provide a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of the control of human movement from the perspective of both adaptation of the neural control system and adaptation of properties of the mechanical plant, incorporating approaches from physiology, engineering and computational neuroscience.
