Academic Achievements
Motor Rehabilitation Lab
The Motor Rehabilitation Lab pursues a systematically understanding of the mechanism of human movement, exploring novel rehabilitation approaches, and examining interactive effects of treatment, with neuromuscular electrical stimulation, bionic design, assistive robots, and computer simulations. Our researches focus on the investigation of the human sensorimotor control mechanicsm, functional movement restoration and musculoskeletal tissue mechanism. The lab provides a wide range of equipments and techniques for human motion analysis, electrophysiological analysis, rehabilitation robot design and finite-element modelling.
