Our approach

Collaboration
Collaboration is at the heart of rehabilitation robotics. Our work brings together physiologists, robotics experts, computer scientists, and engineers to drive research forward and improve quality of life in the community.
Graduate student research
Our aim is to provide world-class training of students from diverse academic backgrounds using state of the art technology. Students in the rehabilitation robotics lab benefit from extensive hands-on training and mentorship from all members of our research group.
Our lab 
The rehabilitation robotics laboratory in the Edmonton Clinical Health Academy was designed specifically for our high-tech equipment, from robots you can ride to a brand new EON icube Mobile virtual reality emersion system our laboratory is a hub of robotics technology on campus.
