Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Dr. Krebs is a Principal Research Scientist and Lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology- Newman Laboratory for Biomechanics and Human Rehabilitation.
He also holds affiliate positions as an Adjunct Professor at University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Neurology and in the Division of Rehabilitative Medicine, as a Visiting Professor at Fujita Health University, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Japan, as a Visiting Professor at Newcastle University, Institute of Neuroscience, UK, and as a Visiting Professor at Osaka University, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Japan.
He is a pioneer in the design, development, clinical use, and research of robots used to administer rehabilitation therapy to patients with neurological injury and was recognized as such with the prestigious IEEE -INABA Technical Award for Innovation leading to Production in 2015.
This award recognizes original innovative research and concepts that have evolved into commercialized products.
In 2014 Dr. Krebs became a Fellow of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and was nominated by two IEEE societies: to this distinguished engineering status "for contributions to rehabilitation robotics and the understanding of neuro-rehabilitation."
holds numerous foundational patents for the use of robotic technology in rehabilitation.
is extensively published in more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific and clinical publications.
is currently a co-investigator to an ongoing multi-site randomized control trial in upper extremity robotics in stroke under the NHS (National Health Service) in the UK, that is largest study of its kind in the world.
He is a co-founder of Interactive Motion Technologies.
