Roger Gassert (S’02–M’06–SM’13) received the M.Sc. degree in microengineering and the Ph.D. degree in neuroscience robotics from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2002 and 2006, respectively. He joined the ETH Zurich in 2008, where he is currently an associate professor of Rehabilitation Engineering. He has made contributions to the field of neuroscience robotics to investigate sensorimotor control and related dysfunctions, as well as to robot-assisted assessment and therapy. His research interests are in physical human-machine interaction, rehabilitation robotics, assistive technology and the neural control of movement.
TBME, Featured ArticlesDesign and Characterization of an Exoskeleton for Perturbing the Knee During Gait
The human knee joint displays a wide range of mechanical behaviors, enabling efficient and robust locomotion under varying conditions. With the rise of active and semi-active knee assistive devices (e.g., prostheses and orthoses), there is a need to quantify the... Read more

JTEHM, Articles, Published ArticlesDesign and Application of a New Automated Fluidic Visceral Stimulation Device for Human fMRI Studies of Interoception
Mapping the brain centers that mediate the sensory-perceptual processing of visceral afferent signals arising from the body (i.e., interoception) is useful both for characterizing normal brain activity and for understanding clinical disorders related to abnormal processing of visceral sensation such...
