In the Rehabilitation Biomechanics Laboratory, we focus on the study of repetitive human movements such as walking and reaching. Throughout these studies, we try to determine which aspects of movement a person actively controls and how this function can most effectively be modeled. We can then use these models, and governing control strategies, to design both passive and active devices which can mimic biological function and restore or improve function in individuals with disability. Another focus of our research is determining appropriate outcomes to measure performance with new technology.
