Welcome to GT-Bionics Lab

GT-Bionics Lab is getting ready after 2016 end of year meeting!
The new internal Tongue Drive System (iTDS) is being presented at the 2012 IEEE ISSCC in San Francisco! It is also being featured at Georgia Tech's Research News blog. Check it out! Mouth Gear: Tongue Drive System Goes Inside the Mouth to Improve Performance and User Comfort.
George Walton Academy toured GT Bionics Lab on Nov. 2015. Zhenxuan "James" showed them the Tongue Drive System (TDS).
Our lab has a lot of great undergraduate students working alongside our graduate students with programs such as ORS.
The Tongue Drive System (TDS) has had great success during clinical trials. Here is a video of Jason, a friend of our lab, demoing the device.
GT-Bionics is investigating many areas of biomedical engineeing. Please visit our research pages for more details.
EnerCage: A smart experimental arena that can wirelessly power, communicate with, and track electronics that are attached to or implanted in small freely behaving animal subjects.
One of our goals at GT-Bionics is to develop innovative implantable medical devices. The PCB above is the 6th generation of the Wireless Integrated Neural Recording (WINeR6) system-on-a-chip (SoC), fabricated in a standard CMOS process.Click here for more details!
The Tongue Drive System has great potential to help disabled regain independence and control over their environment. We're always looking for volunteers for clinical testing. If interested please contact us!
The TDS has been featured in many media outlets. Please visit our media page to see more videos.
Congratulations Dr. Temi Prioleau! Everyone at GT-Bionics and Georgia Tech will miss you!
Our group is constantly growing. Please visit our student's profiles and see if YOU might fit in at GT-Bionics!

Welcome to GT-Bionics! We are a research group at Georgia Tech performing active research in the following fields:
