Welcome to NREL
The Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory (NREL) investigates the control mechanism of neuromuscular system in able-bodied persons and individuals with neuromuscular impairments and wearer-robot interactions, develops advanced neural-machine interfacing technologies and novel engineering & computational frameworks for wearer-robot symbiosis, and applies these techniques to robotic prosthetics, exoskeletons, computers, and other assistive machines. Our research goal is to improve the quality of life of persons with physical disabilities.
We are now recruiting participants with upper limb or lower limb amputations for our research studies to test new software and devices that give amputees more control.
