Robotic Arm (Orthosis) for Children with Muscular Dystrophy

Children afflicted with muscular dystrophy loose function of their arms progressively. The objective of this project is to study the characteristics of the decline in muscle power and to develop a powered orthotic device that will enable them to continue to use their arms.

Modeling Human Response to Rough Terrain Ride

Military and agricultural vehicles often subject their occupants to high crest vibrations and impulsive motion perturbations. The objective of this study is to assess the response of the spine to such motion, when muscular function exists and is contributory to the spinal loading.

Reflection Of Muscle Exertion Level And Fatigue In Force Tremor Patterns: Physiological Modeling And Experimental Validation

Fatigue and muscular exertion may determine the likelihood of sustaining injuries in a workplace or while driving. The use of accelerometers or force sensors to determine the extent of fatigue may be a valuable, non-invasive tool for accident prevention. The objective of this study is to assess the validity of this technique and compare it with alternative tools, such as electromyography.

Weight Bearing Optimization in Prosthetic Limbs

Lower limb prostheses are attached to the residual limb with a socket interface that transmits the forces of impact to the soft tissue and skeleton via specialized contact areas. The objective of this project is to determine the optimal geometry of the contact area, which in turn will produce minimal tissue overload and will minimize risk of pain and ulceration.
