The aim of this course is that the student knows different applications automatically in the medical field. robots for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics for lower and upper limbs be studied in particular. aspects of these robotic control systems that interact with the human body and the different strategies used (impedance and admittance controls) as well as different types of sensors and actuators are addressed.
brain-computer interfaces (BCI) and different types of applications where these types of interfaces are used will also be explored. Different types of sensing techniques can be seen to capture information from the nervous system.
pacemakers, ventricular assist systems and artificial hearts: Finally the study of cardiac support systems will be addressed.
To achieve these objectives, the student must acquire a range of knowledge and skills.
As regards knowledge, the end of the course the student will be able to:
1. Understand the operation of robotic surgery systems.
2. Understand the operation of Prosthetics and Orthotics upper and lower limb.
3. Understand the operation of the exoskeletons.
4. Understand the systems and control strategies used in these systems ..
5. Understand the operation of the actuators and sensors used in prostheses, orthoses and exoskeletons.
6. Understand the functioning of brain interfaces based systems.
As for general skills or skills during the course they will work:
¿Overview of the problem of control of a linear dynamic system both based on the transfer function and state-space techniques.
¿Ability to design controllers for linear dynamic systems, as well as to analyze and interpret the results. This capability is especially work in the labs and in the resolution and discussion of case studies.
Capacity for team work cooperatively, critical and respectful of the solutions proposed by others, creative and responsible as a member of a team, to make the designs considered, distributing the workload to tackle complex problems. This capability will work in both practices laboratory, to be held in equipment such as in solving exercises, discussions and tutorials that may also have group character.
¿Recognition of the need for continuous learning and the ability to obtain and apply required lainformación accessing technical literature related to the scope of the subject both inEnglish and English. Ability to access the information required to know the details of a particular configuration.
¿Ability to communicate effectively both orally, written or graphic in both Spanish and English throughout the development of the activities proposed in the course (exercises, discussions, practices, etc.)
