Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas
Bioengineering Group

CSIC is the largest public multidisciplinary research organisation in Spain. The Bioengineering Group has long term expertise in managing human-machine interaction, HMI (a basic element in MNP and NR devices for restoring physical impairment). In cognitive HMI, CSIC has particular expertise in algorithms for processing bioelectrical activity (EEG, EMG) and biomechanical information (IMUs). In the area of physical HMI, CSIC has developed several functional compensation systems (tremor, gait support, assistance to CP kids) based on robot-human interaction.

Institut de Bioenginyeria de Catalunya

IBEC develops multidisciplinary research of excellence, from basic research to medical applications, in the biomedical engineering field. IBEC focuses its activity on six research programmes related to cellular biotechnology; nano-bioengineering; biomechanics and cellular biophysics; biomaterials, implants and tissue engineering; signals and medical instrumentation; and robotics and biomedical imaging. IBEC was established in 2005 by the Government of Catalonia, the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC). The research line in Robotics is focussed both on the area of rehabilitation and assistance, as well as on technological support to surgery. Its scientific research is mainly devoted to the study of strategies for human robot interaction in a natural way, as required in the medical field. From the application field perspective, the kind of interaction strategies relies on: assistance to teleoperation, research on natural communication ways, and research on perception based robot behaviours.
