Our Research Profile


...includes the focus: bionics in mechatronics (microsystems, robotics) BioMOEMS (Bio-Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems), human-compatible design (from ergonomics to assistance systems), movements and mechatronics in biomedical technology. We expand the mechatronic system integration with bio-components (biogenic, biocompatible, bio-analog, bio-functional)


We Offer Advice on Issues


...bionics and function-analog modeling, measurements and analysis of movements and force variables as well as modeling based on them. In addition, we deal with new cell cultivation processes, the development of special robots and exoskeletons, sound analysis and the synthesis of biocompatible mechatronic systems.
