VISION

We believe in improving the quality of life for people with impaired sensory or motor capabilities. We aim to develop  innovative solutions  that are inspired by and integrated with the human biology.

MISSION

We work towards bridging animal and human research  to  create knowledge that leads to novel rehabilitation systems.   

The group investigates basic neuromuscular mechanisms, their functional consequences mediating both acute adjustments (e.g., arousal, muscle fatigue, pain) and chronic adaptations (e.g., aging, gender, training, stroke, rehabilitation), and methods to restore, replace, and modulate lost or impaired motor functions.
