The group Analysis and synthesis v movement in man and machine has long-standing excellence in the field of man and machine movement analysis and artificial and natural motor control. The group has wide experience in robotics research, robotic applications, rehabilitation and clinical work.

In past we worked hand by hand with companies like TRIMO on construction assembly robot, for this was group praised with The 2010 EUROP/EURON Robotics Technology Transfer Award, 3rd prize. Our knowledge is further exploited by Eta Cerkno, Yaskawa, ABB and others. We have traditionally strong collaboration with number of clinics at UKC in particular with the University Rehabilitation Institute.

The vision of the research team is based on the international openness, co-operation on equal basis with eminent EU groups (ETH, TUM) and worldwide. The group has been a partner in the EU funded STREP projects SENSATIONS, GENTLE/S, I-Match, Alladin, MIMICS and Evryon.

Main original scientific achievements are: evaluation of the movements of the upper extremity, novel robotic devices for training of the upper extremities, advanced interactive control of complex robot devices, training of standing, standing-up, and walking, psychophysiological feedback loop and haptics in MRI environment.

The excellence of the group can be judged also by the number of publications in peer reviewed journals (57 in the last 5 years), the number of Ph. D. (9 in last 5 years, currently there are 9 Ph.D. students), to mention, our group financing is 1,8 FTE. Currently we serve as guest editors in two IF Journals and as members of several boards. Our track is showing notable number of book chapters in international books, robotic textbooks in Slovenia and internationally. During last five years were filled five patent applications.

Lectures are given for several courses in robotics, microprocessors and biomedical engineering. It is worth to notice traditional student industrial workshop Days of Robotics.

Our doctors can be met at Berkeley, University of Illinois and in companies as Instrumentation Technologies, Avtoelektrika, Avtenta, Silica, Lastinski inž., University of Split.

Members of group received national Zois research award as well as Zois award for life achievements, prestigous Swiss Technology Award, are IEEE fellows, AIMBE fellows, members of SAZU and IAS. The program “Analysis and synthesis of movement in man and machine” was according to the evaluation of ARRS in past placed among five best in the area of engineering in Slovenia and recently classified among those with six year financing.
