Biorobotica

Joint laboratories

Neonatology Lab

The Neonatology laboratory for the development of robotic systems and ICT, is a collaboration between The BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna and Azienda Ospedaliera Pisana (AOUP).

The aim of the Joint Lab are: i) development of research for innovative solutions in the field of ICT; ii) development of clinical models, devices and systems in the field of bio-robotics, robotics in functional areas (respiratory, neurological, etc.).
