The Mechatronics Systems Engineering Program at Western

Mechatronic Systems engineering is a relatively new area of specialization. Mechatronics engineers combine mechanical, electrical, computer, control and systems design to create smart solutions to everyday problems. Professor Trejos will describe the program at Western and its relationship to her work in Biomedical Systems.


Ana Luisa Trejos is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Western University and an Associate Scientist at Canadian Surgical Technologies and Advanced Robotics, Lawson Health Research Institute. She has expertise in the design, development and testing of medical mechatronic systems. Her research is focused towards evaluating how novel mechatronic devices can improve patient care during surgery, therapy and rehabilitation. This includes the development of smart devices for minimally invasive surgery and the design of wearable devices for the treatment of chronic pain. Another component of her research entails the development and evaluation of systems for surgical training and motor skills assessment.
