Max Ortiz Catalán
Dr. Ortiz Catalán is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, where he founded and currently leads the Biomechatronics and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory (@ChalmersBNL). He works in close collaboration with Sahlgrenska University Hospital, and serves as a Research Director of Integrum AB, both in Gothenburg, Sweden. Dr. Ortiz Catalán won the “Brian & Joyce Blatchford Award” by ISPO in 2017, the “SER Prize” by SER in 2017, the “Delsys Prize” by Delsys in 2016, and the “European Youth Award” by the European Council in 2014. His research includes bioelectric signals acquisition electronics (analog and digital); bioelectric signal processing and machine learning algorithms for decoding motor volition and control; neuromuscular interfaces; neurostimulation for sensory feedback; bone-anchored prostheses and osseointegration; and, virtual and augmented reality for neuromuscular rehabilitation and the treatment of phantom limb pain.

Bionic prostheses and neurorehabilitation from pain.
Technology has the potential to allow patients to reintegrate into society after traumatic events leading to amputations or motor impairments. In addition to the functional challenges, these patients often develop chronic neuropathic pain that further hinders their family’s quality of life as well as their own. Similarly, children born with congenital malformation face functional challenges to overcome what otherwise are life-permanent handicaps. Dr. Ortiz Catalan lecture will be about novel but clinically viable technologies to restore patients’ quality of life. Using bone-anchored prosthesis (osseointegration), neuromuscular interfaces, and machine learning, Dr. Ortiz Catalan’s work resulted in the first bionic arm integrated directly into the patient’s bone, nerves, and muscles. Dr. Ortiz Catalan will also discuss how motor prediction technology in combination with Augmented Reality can be used to treat Phantom Limb Pain in patients for whom no other treatments were successful.
