Our group develops technological innovation projects in the area of Biomedical Engineering aiming social development and the improvement of the quality of life. We use free software and open design models from international foundations in cooperation with Brazilian institutions. Our teaching, research and extension projects are interdisciplinary: Assistive Technology Devices (prostheses, orthoses and wheelchairs) and protocols for Forensic Anthropometry. We invite motivated students with ideas of projects for scientific initiation, graduation work, master's and doctorate. If you have an idea that you would like to discuss and explore, please get in touch!
