Our research compasses three critical areas within bionic development:
- Brain computer interfaces (BCIs), which are systems that act as a "middle-man" between a brain and a device to enable a direct communications pathway between the brain and the object to be controlled.
- Myoelectric control, which uses electrical signals generated naturally in the human body to control the actions of a prosthesis or robots.
- Using the electrical activity within the heart to create mobile ECG machines that can diagnose diseases and monitor patients in hospitals.
All three of these areas use the electric signals our body naturally produces to identify intentions and illness, so we may provide feedback and information to the user to improve their well-being. In particular, our lab aims to detect intentions using non-invasive electrical activity - to be able to read your body without having to introduce any instruments within it. Our lab is always looking for motivated people to contribute to the lab. If you're interested in collaborating or conducting research with us, please contact us to see what is available.
