We research the new, the uncharted, the possible next technologies

Augmented prosthetics

Collaboration with MIT Medialab Biomechatronics group to explore new AR interfaces to facilitate the manipulation and understanding of prosthetic limbs in the framework of our Kinetic AR research. We have designed the interfaces that will be used for a lower-extremity powered prosthesis. Using the Kinetic AR framework, the user will be able to visualize joint position, angle or torque force. Other mechanical parameters are visible in AR such as information on the control unit, the motor encoder, the force sensor or the joint encoder.
