New electromechanical (micro) devices and technologies specially designed for medical applications have nowadays an important role in the society. The research challenge for the biomedical systems ranging from medical robotics and haptic surgical tools to medical implants and assisted life technologies is the design of new types of distributed actuators that will meet specific requirements of safety, mobility, flexibility, low power consumption, etc. Fundamental research challenges are also the modeling of the interaction of low-frequency electro-magnetic fields with biological matter and the development of new devices and methods for electro-magnetic stimulation of brain, muscles, skin, etc. The projects which are currently conducted by the EPE group for Medical applications are:
