RASCAL conducts research into building assistive devices, that are controlled by natural electrical signals from the human body. We combine robotics, neuroscience, and medicine to develop techniques that can allow paralyzed persons or amputees to control different devices, such as computers, televisions, or prosthetics. We are also developing assistive supernumerary robotic tools for people who work in hazardous environments.
We are indebted to the volunteers and families of volunteers, who help test our systems and provide feedback. We are fortunate to work with many disabled volunteers, whose participation is so valuable.
If you are interested in volunteering for research studies, please contact our team to find out more about opportunities.
