2nd year doctoral student in the Graduate Program for Embodiment Informatics
Akira Kato is a second-year doctoral student in the Graduate Program for Embodiment Informatics, in which students can obtain their Master’s and doctoral degrees in a total of five years, and specializes in powered prosthesis.
“Prosthetic hands assist bodily functions of amputees who have lost their hands due to accidentsand so forth,” Kato explains. “Not only do they neutralize their disability, but prosthetic hands can also strengthen human power, augmenting their original performance.”
