The Telerobotic and Biorobotic Systems Lab is directed by Dr. Mahdi Tavakoli in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Alberta.

Our research aims to

  • Develop new technologies for robot-assisted surgery, therapy, and rehabilitation.
  • Develop human-robot interfaces that provide sense of touch for the human.
  • Develop image-guided robotic systems that guide tools inside a patient with superhuman precision.

These robotic technologies will make medical interventions more efficient and less traumatic and will also reduce the burden on the healthcare system.
