O'Malley and team part of NI Week 2013 Keynote!
We had a chance to show off our work with haptic paddles and a new NI product, myRIO (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_ja6iHyv-0, starting @ 7:00)
Many MAHI lab members have received awards and honors this year.
O'Malley enjoys the foot baths of Daejeon, Republic of Korea with Provancher, Kuchenbecker, Okamura, and Cruz
Fabrizio wins TIRR Innovation Grant
Dr. Fabrizio Sergi has been awarded a TIRR Innovation Grant pilot project award for an MRI-compatible version of the RiceWrist
O'Malley named a Center for Teaching Excellence Fellow
The Center for Teaching Excellence at Rice University seeks to transform teaching through mentoring, innovative practices, collaboration, scholarship, and advocacy.
The MAHI Lab focuses on the design, manufacture, and evaluation of mechatronic or robotic systems to model, rehabilitate, enhance or augment the human sensorimotor control system. To this end, we employ analytical and experimental approaches from the field of dynamic systems and controls, with inspiration from human motor control and neuroscience. We are also engaged in the development of novel approaches for teaching dynamic systems and controls.
What we do...
Mechatronics (n): The synergistic combination of mechanical engineering, electronic engineering and software engineering
Haptic (adj.): Of or relating to the sense of touch
