REHABILITATION BIOMECHANICS LABORATORY

The goal of the Rehabilitation Biomechanics Laboratory is to improve function and quality of life in individuals with musculoskeletal impairments. The RBL focuses on understanding repetitive human movements such as walking and reaching, and how people are able to perform these movements with robotic devices. We research explore the factors that relate to a person’s ability to successfully use devices, how to train individuals for optimal use, and the development of appropriate outcome measures to assess success of new technology.
