Personal statement

Dr Arjan Buis leads a leading multi-disciplinary research group that specialises in the development and delivery of next generation Assistive and Adaptive Rehabilitation Technologies (AaRT) including prosthetics, orthotics and soft robotics. Using advanced technology for biomechanical assessments the research group focus on advancing our understanding of the complexity of biomechanical mechanisms that contribute to the generation and control of load transfer forces. In addition, the research group develop the technology to integrate these biomechanical mechanisms into neural interfaces with the prosthetic/ Orthotic field. Dr Buis also has a specialised interest in “real world” evaluation of AaRT, Mechanobiology, advanced composites and component design related topics with a focus on low and up-coming economies

Dr Buis promotes collaborative cross disciplinary research through an international network of partners, notably Google and promotes impact though relationships with multi sector industry partners. He is extensively involved in the Centre of Excellence in Rehabilitation Research and a key academic in the National Centre for Prosthetics & Orthotics. He is also an active member of the Strathclyde Ageing Initiative and the Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering (SRPe).
