OVERVIEW

The purpose of this course is to provide a perspective on robotic technologies applied to (and inspired by) themes of biomedical research and practice. Robotics is a multidisciplinary technology, with elements from computer, electrical and mechanical engineering and with an increasing spectrum of biomedical applications. These include basic research in sensory-motor systems, advanced surgical and diagnostic techniques, Brain and body machine interfaces, prosthetics and rehabilitation.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The purpose of this course is to provide a perspective on robotic technologies applied to (and inspired by) themes of biomedical research and practice. The first part of the course is intended to provide a background of formal instruments for understanding control of biomedical robotic devices, biological movement control and their possible relations. The second part is devoted to in-depth analysis of the specific applications.
•    Biological movement control: hardware and software
•    Robots for biomedical research
•    Surgery robotics, teleoperation, cooperative manipulation
•    Brain and Body machine interfaces
•    Prosthetics
•    Neuro-Rehabilitation Robotics
•    Assistive robotics
•    Sensory substitution
•    Biomimetic robotics
