Please join us as we welcome Professor Alon Wolf, founder and director of the Biorobotics and Biomechanics Lab in the Technion Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on the fundamental theories in kinematics biomechanics, mechanism design with applications in medical/surgical robotics, rehabilitation robotics, and biorobotics. Prof. Wolf co-founded MedRobotics with colleagues from Carnegie Mellon University. Their Flex Robotic System (FRS), based on Prof. Wolf’s search and rescue snake robot, can reach body cavities beyond the surgeon’s direct line of sight, especially head and neck structures. The FRS was approved for medical robotics assistive surgery in Europe in 2014 and in the U.S. in July 2015.
A light kosher dinner will be served.
This event is free of charge and there will be no solicitation of funds.Map Unavailable
