The Mechatronics and Robotics Research Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Amherst is directed by Professor Frank Sup. We focus on the advancement of physical human-machine interaction. The core of the lab’s research is on human-centered mechatronic design in the development of rehabilitative technologies. The research topics span from wearable robotics such as intelligent prosthetics and exoskeletons, to advanced control structures and methodologies. We strive to expand the boundaries in the research community, while providing a hands-on learning environment in leading-edge science.
