Program Description:

Advances in Bionics and Medical Exoskeletons
January 16, 2019 – Regis College – Weston, MA

Come and see how much closer new technology is bringing patients to full limb utility!

Attractive artificial limbs with remarkable capabilities and natural motion are replacing the rigid prosthetics and hook-and-cable systems of yesteryear. The performance and capability of both exoskeletons and bionics have been markedly enhanced by technologies that sensitively and accurately interpret and respond to patient nerve signals and, in some recent research, send appropriate sensory signals back.

  • At this presentation, researchers Jesse Wheeler from Draper and Shriya Srinivasan from MIT will share some of their cutting-edge research in this area.
  • Paul Gudonis of Myomo and Christpher Nycz of WOI’s Automation and Interventional Medicine Laboratory will discuss the latest developments in rehabilitation robotics and their future visions for this field.
  • Christopher Morse from Ottobock will offer industry insight into what it takes to innovate in the advanced prosthetics space.
