Supporting the practice of medicine with leading-edge technologies, from improving battlefield decision-making to analyzing healthcare data

Advanced technology meets the human body

We apply our technological capabilities—in artificial intelligence and robotics, sensor design and data fusion, intelligent tutoring, and human-machine interface design—to delivering medical training.

We got our start in health and medicine with tools to improve care for warfighters and veterans; over the last 20 years, we’ve expanded to creating solutions for the National Institutes of Health, collaborating with hospitals and community health organizations, and partnering with medical device companies. Our researchers also contribute fundamental knowledge to the field, sharing their contributions through a multitude of academic journal and conference publications.
