Robotic hand with real handWhat do we do?

The Waterloo Engineering Bionics lab develops special systems using artificial intelligence, robotics, and our body's natural physiological signals to provide solutions to millions of people around the world who are unable to speak, walk, or move their hands. Our lab collaborates with hospitals, industry partners, and other research labs from all over the world to create novel ideas that are accessible to everyone.

Our research investigates electric signals from the human body (electroencephalography, electromyography, and electrocardiography) to create non-invasive brain-computer interfaces, portable ECG machines, and affordable intelligent prosthetics.
