Cesar Márquez Chin, PhD
Therapeutic Applications of Complex Systems Laboratory
Dr. Márquez-Chin is a Scientist. His research focuses on creating new technologies to restore the ability to move voluntarily after stroke and spinal cord injury. Central to his work is the development of systems that connect brains and machines directly which, when used as a therapeutic intervention, can help patients move again even in the most severe forms of paralysis. He also creates new low-cost robotic technologies and advanced alternate user interfaces that support patients and their service providers during physical and occupational rehabilitation. His current projects include testing a BCI-controlled functional electrical stimulation therapy to restore upper-limb movement after spinal cord injury.
