  • PostDoc Position in Robot Aided Rehabilitation @ NTU Singapore

    Post Doc position in Robotics Rehabilitation at Nanyang Technological University in collaboration with Singapore General Hospital

    Deadline for applications: October 15th, 2016
    Duration: 1 year contract renewable


    Title of the project:
    Robot-aided system for the diagnosis and rehabilitation of motor and proprioceptive functions in stroke patients

    Description:
    This project aims to use a novel device for Wrist Rehabilitation for purposes of assessment and treatment for patients with upper limb impairments following stroke.
    Stroke commonly causes long-term consequences affecting muscle strength and position sense (proprioception) and as a result causes disability and handicap.
    Deficits of proprioception are often neglected and can impair movements and function beyond muscle strength.
    Assessment of proprioceptive deficits is currently very subjective and is often only quantitative. Current rehabilitation following stroke is labour intensive and thus expensive.
    Robotic systems may offer opportunities for alternate rehabilitation systems.

    Scope of the Project:
    All the reserach activities are coordinated by NTU Assitive Robotics and Interactive Ergonomic System Lab (ARIES) and Singapore General Hospital (SGH) Neurology & Rehabilitation Division and Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) Center for Advance Rehabilitation Technology.
    The project will be articulated in the following steps:
    1-Implement on our robotic device for wrist rehabilitation a novel algorithm for assessment of proprioceptive disorders and motor rehabilitation.
    2-Test the device in a randomized clinical trial in collaboration with SGH and TTSH which are the co-principal investigators of the project.


    Requirements
    We are looking for a scientist with the following competences/skills:
    • Background and working experience in mechatronics/robotics with special emphasis on haptics;
    • Proficiency in MatLab Simulink Programming Environment;
    • Backgournd in clinical rehabilitation and physical therapy
    • Basic knowledge of neurology and neurophysiology
    All the above competences/skills are highly desirable but not all are strictly mandatory.
    Strong organizational skills, creativity, motivation and communication skills (oral and written) are highly required.
    The prospective candidate has a Ph.D. in Mechatronics, Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering, Robotics, Physical Therapy, Biomechanics or related fields.

    Info and application
    please contact directly sending your CV and motivation letter to Lorenzo MASIA (lorenzo.masia@ntu.edu.sg)
