The field of neuro-biomechanics is undergoing a rapid expansion in scope, enabled by new tools, discoveries and real-world applications. Priming this expansion are key stakeholders: techno-centric academic institutions, federal and private funding agencies, and entrepreneurial companies both small and large.

Altec, Inc. is dedicating some of its resources to stimulating the academic minds to the delivery of real-world applications.

The Altec team looks forward to serving the academic communities through these interactive educational lectures at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and other academic institutions.
