About the Author

Graham Brooker is a Senior Lecturer at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics at the University of Sydney. While completing his baccalaureate in electrical engineering, he developed a myoelectric controlled rehabilitative exercise device using an early microprocessor. During his two years of compulsory national service, his passion turned toward radar, which he continued in for 20 years until he left industry for academia in 1999. While completing his Ph.D. at the Centre for Field Robotics, he conducted research and lectured in sensors to reestablish his biomedical credentials. In 2007, he developed a course in Biomechatronics which has been offered as a final year elective for mechatronic and biomedical engineering students. This book has evolved from that course.


"I highly recommend this book for any student, healthcare professional, or O&P practitioner who wants to learn about how to better control the devices we provide to our patients. If you want to demystify the C-Leg(c) or Proprio(c) foot, this text can help. With a basic understanding of biomechatronics, the O&P practitioner can sit at the design table with other engineers and together create devices that make our patient's lives better."-- (12/17/2013)
