The SocketSense project successfully participated in the 15th International Conference on Biomedical Electronics Devices (Biodevices 2022), which was held online due to the ongoing pandemic. Suranjan Ram Ottikkutti presented the paper “A Mechatronics-Twin Framework based on Stewart Platform for the Effective Exploration of Operational Behaviors of Prosthetic Sockets with Amputees”, authored by DeJiu Chen, Suranjan Ram Ottikkutti and Kaveh Nazem Tahmaseb, members of KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology.
So, what better way to learn about the conference than asking Suranjan, the paper presenter, to share his impressions of the scientific meeting. He started by saying that the overall SocketSense presence was successful and then remarked that the paper was shortlisted for the best paper award, which was very pleasing to the team. Then he referred to the importance of the event to the project, “I am very grateful for the opportunity that was given to me to present at the BioDevices conference. This is a great encouragement for the SocketSense consortium and me to improve and put in our best efforts for future publications”. He also expressed anticipation and enthusiasm for future conferences by noting, “I also hope that we can attend more conferences in person in the future with the relaxation of pandemic restriction to improve engagement with other researchers.”
As Suranjan mentioned, it is vital for researchers to be able to meet in person and engage in discussions to bring about new developments, the generation of ideas and the promotion of innovative projects. So, let’s hope that 2022 will provide us with more offline event opportunities.
