Richard Woodward PhD, CEng

I'm a Research Engineer at Ottobock HealthCare GmbH, operating out of Vienna, Austria.


I work in the area of biomechatronics, with a background in cybernetics, biomedical engineering, neurotechnology, and software development, to name a few.
My research includes:

Sensor Design

Innovative motion and muscle activity sensors, with a specific design towards human gait monitoring and sensor synergy.


Prosthesis control and Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) using mechanomyography (MMG) and non-invasive techniques.

Signal Processing

Data collection, manipulation, and feature extraction for human motion, muscle activity, and the relation between the two.
