    I'm not active duty any more (I've been out of the service (USN) for two years now) but I still work for the military as a civilian contractor. I'm involved in some medical research, military cybernetics, and have strong interagency cooperation and a good working relationship with various universities, which requires me to travel to test software, hardware or for conferences. I also spend about 2 months a year in Sweden visiting my family - and Norway occasionally to visit my friend @Technofox. I'm only home maybe 5 or six months a year. This schedule is a bit off right now as my wife (active USN) is deployed and I've a two month old daughter than I'm taking care of by myself, thank goodness for flexibility in the workplace:confused:.

    Thanks:0--0:. I've spent most of the last two months in shock. First time parent, mom overseas... :0o:

    :D

    I don't, no. I know the University of Maryland has a strong Biomedical Devices Research department, but I'm not sure what exactly their focus is.

    Right now my focus is on prosthetics, I work a lot with wounded soldiers - and on in-field devices to enhance soldiers in theater - and am working on bionicmechatronicss (or cybernetics if you'd rather).

    I work closely with MIT's bionics division, who's done a wonderful job with their prosthetics research.

    Things like this mainly:

    But also exoskeleton-type devices, for infield use to make a soldiers movements more efficient and expend less energy.

    Haha, yes, but I've lived in the US for 29 years. I'm almost 30|Arghh|. I was born in Sweden while my mother was on a business trip, lived there for a few weeks and came to the US where I've lived ever since.

    My parents retired and moved to Sweden however, and I've a sister and a brother that live there as well.
