Augmentation & Exoskeleton Research

Robots can facilitate complex medical tasks and augment human capabilities, empowering people to perform previously impossible or difficult tasks. IRIM researchers are developing the next generation of medical robots and human augmentation systems, encompassing surgical robotics, rehabilitation and assistive robotics, and prosthetics that all enhance the human experience. Ongoing research includes work on robotic systems for image-guided surgical interventions, mobile robots to assist people in their homes, socially interactive robots for childhood education, micro-meso-macro scale robots for surgery, intelligent prostheses for superhuman musicianship, soft robotic systems, haptics, and robotic exoskeletons that interpret a user’s intent.
