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. See our recent videos.
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
