    Student Choice Award

    PhD candidate Ali Nasr recieved the Student Choice Award in this year's SYDE Graduate Student Symposium with his research on the design and control of active-passive shoulder exoskeleton robot. Congratulations!

  3. Sep. 19, 2022Participants needed: mechanical modeling of a wearable robot

    We are looking for participants for research to develop biomechanical models for control of a wearable robot. We invite men and women (not pregnant) that are 20-50 years old, free of shoulder pain and injuries in the last year, do not have any implanted medical device(s), have no allergy or sensitivity to adhesives and silver, and free of any of the conditions/symptoms under “Present Health” and “List Symptoms” in the Health Screening form.
