Field Trips to a Haptics and Robotics in Medicine Lab

The Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine (CHARM) Lab offers field trips and demos/presentations in local K-12 classrooms and on campus. The CHARM Lab creates robots and human-computer interfaces that use haptics in order to improve human health, safety, and quality of life. The word haptics refers to the sense of touch. Applications of our research include:

  • Robot-assisted surgery
  • Simulation and training
  • Rehabilitation
  • Prosthetics
