Bionic Engineering Lab

Our research activity focuses on the intersection of Robotics, Design, Control, and Biomechanics. We invent, prototype, engineer, and test bionic devices and systems to help people move and live independently.

The Bionic Engineering Lab is directed by Prof. Tommaso Lenzi and is affiliated with the Utah Robotics Center and the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah.

Our reserach is currently funded by the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Defense.
