Robert Riener - The Man Behind the Formula One of Prosthetics
Robert Riener is Full Professor for Sensory-Motor Systems at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology, ETH Zurich. His current research interests involve human motion synthesis, biomechanics, virtual reality, man-machine interaction, and rehabilitation robotics. He authored and coauthored more than 400 peer-reviewed articles and 20 patents.
At Lift, Riener will present a new approach to accelerate progress in his field: Cybathlon, a championship for athletes with disabilities who are using advanced assistive devices, including robotic technologies, the most modern powered knee prostheses, wearable arm prostheses, powered exoskeletons, powered wheelchairs, electrically stimulated muscles and novel brain-computer interfaces - the “Formula One” of prosthetics.
