Welcome to the Research Group “ReAll” which is located at the Department of Medical Technology at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria in Linz . “ReALL” focuses its activities on the computer-assisted development of bionic arm and leg prosthetics for amputees with highly motivated students. The teaching activities take place in cooperation with AUVA, which acts as a mediator for the teaching prostheses.

Our Mission is to develop prostheses in co-operation with both users and manufacturers. Following the examples of nature our work is strongly based on bionic principles steadily reducing the gap between healthy natural and artificial limbs.

Our Vision is to support all individuals in need of limb prosthetics. Unfortunately, people in emerging and developing countries do not benefit from the advancements in limb prosthetics to the same extent as those in industrialized nations. The situation is similar in conflict zones. The reasons for this are often significant infrastructural challenges and a lack of qualified personnel. Read more…
