About Dr. Deepak Joshi
NDr. Deepak Joshi received his PhD in biomedical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi. He has been working in the area of neural prosthetic design and development for last ten years. During his PhD he developed a prototype lower limb prosthesis controlled by contra lateral limb. This work earned Invention award from Intellectual Ventures Asia. During his tenure at Department of electrical and computer engineering in National University of Singapore (NUS), he worked on development of artificial hand with integrated sensors to create an illusion of touch from human hand. This work demonstrated a significant impact on the social acceptance of upper limb prosthesis and was reported to be the most popular article in IEEE Transaction on neural system and rehabilitation engineering. His research work at Institute of Neuroscience (ION), Newcastle University in United Kingdom (UK) discovered that artificial proprioception can significantly improve the myoelectric control in upper limb amputee. During his postdoctoral at University of Oregon in United States of America (USA), he worked on integration of various sensing modalities to provide seamless transitions in lower limb prosthesis. Before joining IIT Delhi he was working as an Assistant professor with Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Allahabad. Dr. Joshi is currently exploring visual motor control for seamless transition in powered prosthesis and the role of artificial proprioception in lower limb prosthesis and gait rehabilitation. Besides that, he is actively engaged in projects related to development of biomedical instrumentation for applications specific to assistive devices for elderly and disabled.
