Robots to assess brain dysfunction: will sure and steady win the race?

Dr. Scott holds the GSK Chair in Neuroscience, is a Professor in the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences at Queen’s University and sits on the Gairdner Foundation's Medical Advisory Board. He is the inventor of the KINARM robot and is actively involved in the development of advanced technologies for use in basic and clinical research. He is Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of BKIN Technologies that commercializes the KINARM robotic platform.

Join Gairdner and MaRS for a fascinating discussion on how Dr. Scott’s mathematical model and device is being used to increase understanding of the role the brain plays in arm and leg movement. His invention may ultimately improve methods for assessing and rehabilitating stroke and spinal cord victims. It could also help provide the basis for developing neural prostheses capable of restoring function to paralyzed limbs.
