On September 16th, 2009 a very important Neuroprosthetic Symposium will be held at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. This symposium is sponsored by the Center for Neuroprosthetics at WPI’s Bioengineering Institute (BEI). The Center for Neuroprosthetics’s mission is to successfully perform and integrate the enabling basic science and engineering necessary to achieve implantable limb prosthetics. The goal is that for amputees, these implantable neuroprosthetics will have the functional attributes of natural limbs. To promote integrated neuroprosthetics research, this Symposium will be broad in its scope with an appeal to scientific and bioengineering issues. The Symposium will bring together academic, industry and government research leaders to provide a forum for enhancing the integration of the applied science and engineering necessary to achieve functional implantable limb prosthetics.
