Meet the scientists:

This month: Elena García Armada (1971, Valladolid, Spain)

Elena García, PhD Robotics Engineering, began to design industry-oriented robots. However, in 2009 she met Daniela, a girl who was left with severe tetraplegia after a traffic accident. This meeting caused a radical change in her research career, and from then on, she focused on the development of the technology required to improve lower-limb exoskeletons for mobility aid.


She leads the ALTAS 2020 Project, which has received 8 innovation awards by the scientific community, and projects EXOTrainer, EXORAPI and KINDER, all three projects focused on pediatrics gait exoskeletons.


Dr. Elena Garcia has published more than 80 international scientific articles and one scientific book on legged locomotion, and acted as coordinator of 7 international research projects. She is member of the Editorial Board of the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation and IEEE International Conference on Humanoids. Dr. Garcia owns 6 patents and she has founded a spin-off company, Marsi Bionics S.L.
