  • Join Neuromechanics Lab
    Choose from wide variety of research problems in the area of kinetics and kinematics of Human movement

  • Why Neuromechanics Lab?
    Our lab culture nurtures individuals to realize their independent potential and nurtures in the transformation of individuals to leaders in a field of their choice

  • End to end Research
    We work in all domains for our research from designing research problem, building novel devices, designing experiments to analyzing data

  • Electromagnetic Tracking System
    We have very accurate 16 sensors tracking system for capturing fine and dexterous hand movements

What do we do in Neuromechanics Lab?

At Neuromechanics lab, we are interested in understanding the neural basis ("control") of skilled human movements. Further we are interested in understanding movement control strategies in people with motor disorders and in elite athletes/artists. Neuromechanics lab is part of the Biomedical Engineering group in the Dept of Applied Mechanics at IIT Madras.

Our Research Focus

image

Fine & dexterous hand/finger movements are believed to be one of the distinct features human behavior.

In our lab, we investigate how humans perform specific finger movements and interact with the environment in a variety of ways.

Further, we are interested in understanding how humans can learn to perform specific skilled movements.

This research is inherently interdisciplinary and combines knowledge and questions from Movement Neuroscience, Finger/Hand Biomechanics, Robotics/Instrumentation and Machine learning/linear algebra/signal processing.
