Research Center for Intelligent and Rehabilitation Equipment
Depending on the research advantage of mechanical design and theory national key discipline of Tsinghua University and accumulation of scientific achievements in the past decades, Research Center for Intelligent and Rehabilitation Equipment of Tsinghua University Tianjin High-end Equipment Academy works on achievement transformation, research industrialization, product service and other aspects of intelligent mechanical products with policy support from Tianjin Municipal Government and technical support from Tsinghua University.
As the first research body starting rehabilitation engineering study in China, the rehabilitation engineering research team of Tsinghua University Mechanical Engineering Department enjoys a high popularity both at home and abroad. During 4 decades of rehabilitation engineering study, it has carried out more than 40 national-level research programs relating to rehabilitation engineering successively. It takes the lead in developing about a dozen of rehabilitation testing platform and rehabilitation robot system equipment, achieves many research achievements filling the blank within the country and wins more than 60 national patent authorizations for invention. Developed with clinical rehabilitation physicians, all these sample robots play a significant role in promoting solutions for clinical rehabilitation issues after passing strict patient clinical trial verification.
