• Participate in Engineering Expo open house for local K-12 students

Technology Transfer:

A primary mission of the Laboratory for Human Motion Analysis and Neurorehabilitation is to see that its work impacts on society beyond the borders of Texas. This is accomplished largely in part by working with industrial partners who are well-suited to bring about such an impact. The laboratory’s collaboration with industrial partners has the objective of promoting the development of advances in medical technology, devices and systems and related areas through the rapid and timely technology transfer to industrial sectors. The Laboratory for Human Motion Analysis and Neurorehabilitation is committed to providing the enhanced intellectual and technological resources needed by industry to compete successfully in the world market. The Laboratory is not only intended to simply transfer science and technology developed by UTEP to industry, but to have industry involved with the program in the creation of the advances in the first place. This is done in such a way that the research serves the public and is consistent with the UTEP’s goals of education, research, and service to the community.
