masia2The ARIES Lab is one of the Robotic Labs at NTU: it is a space where students and researchers interact, collaborate, generate ideas and inventions. The mission is designing technology for Rehabilitation, Assistive Devices and finding solutions to improve the Ergonomics in Haptic Interfaces.  We start with an idea and we design our own technology, we implement the control and run the experiments. The ARIES Lab research focuses on the development of diagnostic, therapeutic and assistive devices to promote motor recovery, and social re-integration of the patients in activities of daily living. Our research aims to drastically change the present understanding of human/robot interaction and rehabilitation and to produce a new physical substrate for Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology with higher levels of embedded intelligence.

 Domenico Formica wondering....."why does not work?"

....we love mechanics, but not always works as we wish!

we love programming also......

sometimes is not always love......
