MioPRO

MIO-PRO is a project that aims to develop a new human-machine interface for the control of prostheses. The project combines prosthetics and regenerative medicine for the development of 3D muscle tissues from stem cells to connect them with the residual peripheral nerves of patients with amputation. By applying electrodes to these implanted neo-muscles, it will be possible to control the movements of the prosthesis. 
the project will be based on highly interdisciplinary research: advanced molecular biology techniques, biofabrication and the design of appropriate control interfaces for upper limb prostheses.
