Our Mission

The mission of the Wearable Robotic Systems Laboratory is to develop wearable robotic technology that aims to improve recovery of lost motor functions in neurological populations through robot-assisted training.

Our research also seeks to accurately quantify human movements through unobtrusive, custom-designed wearable sensors that can be used in real-life tasks, such as walking down a hallway, climbing and descending stairs or running in the track.

Wearable Robotics

The Ultimate Goal of our research in wearable robotics  is to increase frequency and intensity of rehabilitation exercises while reducing the physical burden on therapists.

In developing our robotic systems, we apply principles of human motor learning and use mechanical and bio-mechanical models and state-of-the-art control strategies to better support those principles, by enabling more intuitive physical human-robot interaction through self-adaptation of the robot behavior to the wearer performance.

Wearable Sensor Technology

The Ultimate Goal of this research thrust is to develop reliable assessment tools capable of measuring subjects' performance in real-life environments and for extended time, with applications to:

Clinical Assessments

Early Diagnosis

Injury Prevention

Human Performance Monitoring

In addition, our group is also passionate about analysis, design, and control of dynamic systems. In particular, we study cable-driven parallel robots (CDPR), a special class of parallel mechanisms where rigid links are replaced by cables or ropes.
