Theme 1: Myoelectric Arm Control with Sensory Substitution

We developed a myoelectric control of an elbow augmented with vibrotactile feedback of elbow position (Fig1A and B). A first experiment on healthy subjects and amputees in collaboration with an (...)

Theme 2: Biomechanics and Spinal Regulation

Myoelectric prosthesis, where artificial movements are controlled by muscle recordings, are all lacking important contributions from limb’s biomechanics and spinal regulations. To reinstall these (...)

Theme 3: Robotic Arm Control (REACHY)

In collaboration with a developmental robotics team (FLOWERS, P-Y Oudeyer) and a startup in robotics (Pollen Robotics), we develop the 3D printed robotic platform REACHY as a testbed for (...)

Theme 4: Computer Vision and Gaze Information

In collaboration with Prof J Benois-Pineau (LABRI), we develop a line of research aiming at integrating tools from computer vision augmented with gaze information, in order to help prosthesis and (...)

Theme 5: Reaching in Virtual Reality

To further develop and test various control schemes, we developed a 3D virtual reality (VR) set-up for reaching and grasping with the arm (Fig 4B). As automatic object detection is now available (...)

Theme 6: Hybrid crayfish

Daniel Cattaert , Julien Bacqué-Cazenave
In order to study the processing of sensory feedback during ongoing movements, we developed a hybrid system comprising the thoracic ventral nerve cord (...)

Theme 7: Hand Biomechanics

One central feature of the human motor system is the presence of redundancy as pointed out by Bernstein (1967). The redundancy implies that the number of variable at a given level of analysis is (...)

Theme 8: Morphogenesis and Biomechanics of Connective Tissues

We study the motion of cell masses during morphogenesis in order to identify links and relationships between diverse anatomical structures in humans. These links have major roles in (...)
