40th International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference (EMBC 2018)

The theme of the meeting is "Learning from the Past, Looking to the Future", inspired by the 40th anniversary of the world's largest international biomedical engineering meeting. Consistent with our theme, we have arranged plenary keynotes from leading industrial and academic scientists, who will give forward looking visions as well as historical perspectives on our field.

Visible to the public CPS: TTP Option: Synergy: Human-Machine Interaction with Mobility Enhancing Soft Exosuits

Stroke is a leading cause of long-term disability, with 80% of survivors having locomotor impairments. Individuals after stroke typically present with hemiparetic gait, characterized as slow, asymmetric, and inefficient. Our lab has been developing soft wearable cyber-physical sytems, called soft exosuits, that interface with paretic limb after stroke through soft and conformal textile-based structures to assist hemiparetic walking. Soft exosuits transmit mechanical power to human body joints via interaction between functional textiles worn on the body and Bowden cable retraction.


Visible to the public CPS: Synergy: Collaborative Research: Cyber-physical digital microfluidics based on active matrix electrowetting technology

This project will design and implement a domain-specific language and compiler for microfluidic laboratory-on-a-chip (LoC) devices based on electrowetting-on-dielectric (EWoD) technology. The Lead PI's team has designed and implemented BioScript, a domain-specific programming language for programmable microfluidics. The BioScript syntax is programmer friendly, with the intention of being accessible to biologists and other researchers and practitioners in the life sciences.
