Many people are familiar with the work of M.C. Escher. We have all learned to appreciate the impossibilities that this master of illusion's artwork presents to the layman's eye.
Many of the so-called 'impossible' drawings of M. C. Escher can be realized as actual physical objects, Prof. Gershon Elber of Technion's Faculty of Computer Science has done just this. His research team has developed a unique CAD application for designing impossible 3D objects, with the 3D printer in Technion's Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning The Belvedere comes to life in a 3D model.

Robotic rehabilitation systems have been developed to treat musculoskeletal conditions, but limited availability prevents most patients from using them. The objective of this research was to create a home-use robotic rehabilitation system.
Prof. Alon Wolf's Biorobotics & Biomechanics Lab's research interests span the spectrum - from the theoretical in kinematics, mechanism design, kinematics of MEMS mechanisms, and biomechanics to the applied in medical robotic devices, biorobotics and rehabilitation systems.
