Being a part of a research institute means that we are involved in the latest research in the field of upper limb prosthetics. Our institute is world-renowned in the area of myoelectric controls and signal processing. As a result, our clients are often asked to take part in research projects.

Many of the research projects currently underway in North America are using control strategies developed here at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering.
