About Us



The mission of the Rehabilitation Robotics Lab (RRL) is to enrich, empower and enhance society by designing personalized, universally accessible communities.

Our lab is part of the University of Alberta's Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine. We are led by two primary investigators: Dr. Martin Ferguson-Pell and Dr. Greg Kawchuk. RRL boasts a conglomeration of researchers, undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from a multitude of faculties, including the Faculties of Medicine & Dentistry, Science and Engineering. We also hold membership in the SMART Network, an interdisciplinary research group at the University of Alberta.

We would like to say a special thank you to our collaborators and sponsors, without whom much of our work would not have been possible:
