PHOENIX — Arizona State University will host its third rehabilitation robotics workshop over the weekend, an event which is slated to draw researchers and industry representatives from across the country.
The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering is sponsoring the workshop, which will be held Friday and Saturday in the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus.
The Phoenix Business Journals reported the event will be ASU’s third of its kind to feature national experts in biomedical engineering, physical therapy, robotics, neuroscience, mechatronics and similar fields.
Previous workshops have led to collaborations on research and technology development.
ASU professor and neurophysiologist Marco Santello said this year’s workshop will explore robotics technologies being used in health care, the challenges in advancing rehabilitation robotics and will look at several ares of science and engineering that are increasingly studying the potential of human-robot interaction.
