Xinyang Tan is a PhD candidate at the Morph Lab, Dyson School of Design Engineering, Imperial College London, UK. His research focuses on applying engineering and robotic technologies to tackle medical challenges especially in the field of rehabilitation. Xinyang completed his MSc at the Imperial College London conducting development of an upper-limb soft robotic exoskeleton to assist active rehabilitation of wrist flexion, extension, supination and pronation. His current PhD research targets on developing a sensorised and changeable stiffness mechanism to optimise fabrication and wearing of static orthoses. Xinyang has conducted or joined a number of medical hardware R&D projects. Many hardwares he worked on have been on market or manufacture, including a peritoneal dialysis equipment, a gynaecologic surgery device, a foot-drop stimulation device, a Parkinson's disease footwear, a smart fetus monitor etc.
