About Our Laboratory

The Haptics and Medical Robotics (HAMR) Laboratory seeks to extend the current knowledge surrounding the human perception of touch, especially as it relates to applications of human/robot interaction and collaboration. We are particularly interested in medical robotics applications such as minimally invasive surgical robots, upper-limb prosthetic devices, and rehabilitation robots. To solve many of the problems in these areas, we apply techniques from human perception, human motor control, neuromechanics, and control theory. Check out Prof. Brown’s recent LCSR seminar.

Does the mechanical impedance of prosthesis matter?

Numerous studies have explored the utility of haptic feedback forĀ upper-limb myoelectric prostheses. Some studies...
