About us

Human mobility, or moving the body from one location to another, is a fundamental capability that facilitates physical, cognitive, and social health. The Neural and Rehabilitation Engineering (NRE) Lab was established to advance independent mobility for over 3 million Canadian adults living with a mobility disability. Drawing on knowledge in sensors, signal processing, robotics, and machine learning, the mission of the NRE Lab is to develop and apply novel: I) methods to measure human motor control in real-world conditions, and II) assistive technologies to facilitate mobility and optimize motor rehabilitation. All projects are externally funded, incorporate both clinical and industry partners, and address issues with strong social and economic impact.
