Neural, Sensory Systems & Rehabilitation

IBBME engineers are designing technologies to rehabilitate the body and improve quality of life.

Whether it’s designing rehabilitation strategies involving electricity to ‘retrain’ damaged nerves, developing optical imaging systems to build communicative devices for the severely disabled, or devising eye-tracking programs that may be able to detect mental illness, IBBME researchers are at the forefront of exploration into the world of sensory and neural systems research.
