Bio: Mohamed Bouri is a group leader of Rehabilitation and Assistive Robotics in the Laboratory of Robotic Systems at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) and lecturer of Robotics and Industrial Robotics. He graduated in Electrical Engineering in 1992 and obtained his PhD degree in Industrial Automation in 1997 from the National Institute of Applied Sciences of Lyon (INSA LYON France). Since 1997, he is at EPFL and is mainly active in the field of robot control, automation and robot design for medical and industrial applications. He is the head of Rehabilitation and Assistive Robotics group since 2005. He has  strong references with the development of many industrialized robotic devices (Hita machine (Willemein Macodel), Delta Direct Drive (Bosch Packaging Technology), MotionMaker and WalkTrainer (Swortec), 5 Axis Polishing  Delta (Unitechnnologies). His ongoing research focus on walking assistive orthoses and rehabilitation devices for upper and lower limbs. Examples of projects in progress concern the development of dedicated haptic interfaces for hemiplegic children (HandReha) in collaboration with the Human Robotics Group at the imperial college (UK); the development of lower limb robotized rehabilitation device (LegoPress), the “Autonomyo” a dedicated exoskeleton for subjects suffering from myopathy and the “WALKI” walking exoskeleton for Kids.​
