Multidisciplinary Human Biomechanics and Design Lab
In the Multidisciplinary Biomechanics and Design Lab at Wichita State University, students examine movement, analyze real world situations and offer insight on how to prevent injuries. This lab offers hands on experience for students, allowing them to create their own studies and apply knowledge they've gained from the College of Engineering to real world situations.

Mechanobiology and Biomedicine Lab (coming soon)
Cardiovascular mechanobiolgy, cell-tissue biophysics, instrumentation/devices to understand cell and tissue mechanobiology, identifying novel surrogate markers of diseases, gene regulation, epigenetics, cell and tissue engineering, regenerative medicine
Dr. Jaydip Desai is the principal investigator in the Neuro-Robotics Lab at Wichita
State University. Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) is a novel technology that can aid
paralyzed patients to replace or restore useful physiological functions using electrical
impulses from human brain. Our Neuro-Robotics lab focuses on noninvasive methods to
acquire EEG signals from human brain, develop EEG signal processing techniques, implement
neural network algorithms and extract features to control various robotics devices
using motor imaginary signals and steady state visual evoked potential signals from
human brain. Real time BMI techniques are developed to control robotic hands, limbs
and automobile robots using neural network algorithms. (Click here: Neuro-Robotics Lab Homepage)
