Max Ortiz-Catalán

Max Ortiz Catalán (M’14) was born in Toluca, Mexico in 1982. He received the electronics engineering degree in 2005 from the ITESM Campus Toluca, Mexico, the M.Sc. degree in complex adaptive systems in 2009, and the Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering in 2014, both from CTH, Gothenburg, Sweden. He is currently an Associate Professor with CTH where he founded the Biomechatronics and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory (@ChalmersBNL). He also serves as the Research Director with Integrum AB, Sweden. His research interests include bioelectric signals acquisition electronics (analog and digital), signal processing and artificial intelligence algorithms for decoding motor volition and control, neuromuscular interfaces, bone-anchored prostheses and osseointegration, virtual and augmented reality for neuromuscular rehabilitation, and the treatment of neuropathic pain. Dr. Ortiz Catalán received the European Youth Award in 2014, the Delsys Prize in 2016, the SER Prize in 2017, and the Brian & Joyce Blatchford Award in 2017.

Evaluation of Computer-Based Target Achievement Tests for Myoelectric Control
   Real-time evaluation of novel prosthetic control schemes is critical for translational research on artificial limbs. Recently, two computer-based, real-time evaluation tools, the target achievement control (TAC) test and the Fitts’ law test (FLT), have been proposed to assess real-time controllability.... Read more

An Alternative Myoelectric Pattern Recognition Approach for the Control of Hand Prostheses: A Case Study of Use in Daily Life by a dysmelia subject
      Abstract The functionality of upper limb prostheses can be improved by intuitive control strategies that use bioelectric signals measured at the stump level. One such strategy is the decoding of motor volition via myoelectric pattern recognition (MPR), which has shown promising... Read more
