Technologies that restore function and alleviate pain

Center For Bionics & Pain Research

CBPR is a multidisciplinary engineering and medical collaboration between Chalmers University of Technology, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, and Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg. We work in close collaboration with the Bionics Institute in Melbourne, Australia

Our Mission

At the Center for Bionics and Pain Research (CBPR) we develop and clinically implement technologies to restore function and alleviate pain due to sensorimotor impairment. Sensorimotor problems affect the interpretation of sensory information and cause difficulties in executing movement.

We work with individuals who have limb amputations in the development of robotic limbs controlled by muscle signals. We are developing surgical and non surgical treatments to reduce pain in individuals with sensorimotor impairments. We also work with individuals recovering from stroke to improve the outcome of their rehabilitation using technologies and therapeutic interventions that we design and manufacture.

1. Research

We share knowledge across disciplines and with colleagues locally and globally with the main aim to translate it clinically


2. Reshare

We share ideas and listen to individuals suffering from sensorimotor impairment in order to formulate the best approach


3. Restore

We assess technologies and therapies to restore lost function and alleviate pain in all of our clinical investigations
