Overview

Amit is a practicing Biomedical Engineer and a Scientist and researches on Medical Device development and Neurophysiology. Amit works at the School of Engineering and Technology at the University of Hertfordshire, England, UK and holds an honorary position at the School of Engineering, University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.

Amit's particular research interests are in the area of Neurorehabilitation (neuromuscular physiology, motor control/impairment and rehabilitation); with the focus on (a) gaining an improved understanding of the control processes that support mobility in healthy people and those with disabilities and (b) developing technology/engineering solutions to tackle the physiological disorders/conditions through exercise and devices.

Amit also enjoys teaching undergraduate and masters students in Biomedical Engineering. At the University of Hertfordshire, he leads various modules including on 'sensors and actuators' and 'system integration for biomedical applications'.

Current Research:

Amit's current research is in the area of optimising the use of vibration stimuli for muscle strengthening and rehabilitation applications, both in the healthy population and in the population with stroke and spinal cord injury. Amit uses various neurophysiological tools (high density EMG, Transcranial and peripheral nerve stimulation) and engineering tools (sensors and advanced signal processing methods) to understand the neurophysiolgical basis of vibration stimuli so that this improved understanding can be employed to develop effective rehabilitation device(s) and exercise(s).

Neurorehabilitation Engineering Lab:

Amit's lab is well equipped for Neurorehabilitation Engineering research with the state of the art equipment.

Lab includes: High density EMG system (TMSi), traditional EMG system (Delsys), Peripheral nerve stimulation system (Digitimer), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (MagVenture), custom designed and developed vibration stimulation devices for the upper and lower limbs (whole body vibration).
