पुनर्वास अनुसंधान और यंत्र​ विकास के लिए टीटीके केंद्र (R2D2)

R2D2 is the TTK Center for Rehabilitation Research and Device Development at IIT Madras, headed by Prof. Sujatha Srinivasan of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The group is involved in research related to human movement, and the design and development of rehabilitation and assistive technologies for people with movement impairments/locomotor disabilities.

Founded in 2015, R2D2 develops affordable assistive products for mobility and independent living needs in India and beyond, works with clinical specialists, NGOs, hospitals, etc., to field-test the designs, and fosters a research environment to evaluate assistive device designs from biomechanical and functional standpoints.

Using appropriate technology, scientific methods and innovative translational models, R2D2 aims to enable easy accessibility and affordability of assistive devices and rehabilitation resources. R2D2 has successfully transferred technology to like-minded industrial partners including its start-up, NeoMotion.
