Abstract

Biomechatronics is the development and optimization of mechatronic systems using biological and medical knowledge. Moreover, biomechatronics describes the research and design of assistive devices for patients with an impaired motoric system. With the increasing and rapidly aging world population, biomechatronics has become an important issue. Medical doctors and physiotherapists are practitioners of the biomechatronics systems. Since they are keenly aware of their patients need, it will be effective for them to assist engineers in the design process. However, to be successful in this process, they need to know some basic engineering terms and structures. Participants will have obtained general knowledge about technical aspects of the rehabilitation of patients with motoric disorders, in particular, with prostheses and orthoses, and electro stimulation with emphasis on the sensors and actuators.
