Total projects: 10
Development of an OpenSim Simulation to Identify Time and Force Magnitude Needed at Toe-Off Stage for an Assistive Force Ankle Device
Finding the ideal time and force magnitude for an assistive ankle device will help people with gait disorders gain better gait patterns.
Using a gyroscope to create a non-anchored force will assist patients with balance impairments to regain balance.
Detection of Heel-Off Initiation Based Correlation Between Ground Reaction Forces and Lower Extremity Surface Electromyography
Identifying the proper application of an assistive force will help effectively restore toe-off gait in individuals with gait disorders.
Designing sensor systems for a self-balancing bicycle will provide assistance to riders with impairments or disability.
