Last week, our lead researcher in robotic control ;-P was recognized with one of the three first prizes “Gold Dissemination” in the contest of popularization carried out by the Centro Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) Yo investigo. Yo soy CSIC. This contest aims to promote scientific dissemination to bring science closer to society and thus promote scientific vocations.
Camila has received this recognition for adapting the research carried out with our Exo-H3, within the Extend project, to a comfortable and interesting story for the general public. In this way she fulfills one of the fundamental purposes of scientific work, which is to understand in order to share and teach.
Camila’s work within the Extend project, as she explained in the first episode of our popular science podcast, consists of developing a reliable robotic control interface based on electromyography (EMG) signals. To do so, it collects electrical signals from the patient’s muscles and converts them into movement instructions that it sends to our lower body exoskeleton, the Exo-H3.
