Research areas description

POLAR’s mission and focus is to research and develop innovative robotics and biomechatronics technologies and methods to help humans relearn, restore, or augment their neuro-motor performance.

Our research on Rehabilitation Robotics is focused on augmenting and analyzing rehabilitation procedures by using robotic systems. These systems are developed to aid various methods of therapeutic training and assessment of sensorimotor performance. We also aim to develop advanced Assistive technologies, robotic systems and Interventions to support patients with disabilities to perform their activities of daily living (ADLs) with more independence.

Our studies target various patients, from pediatric to elderly, with varying degrees of upper-limb or lower-limb disabilities.
