The goal of our research is to improve mobility and function in individuals with neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disabilities through innovation in wearable robotics and control.  We conduct laboratory experiments and develop musculoskeletal models and simulations to study the underlying mechanisms causing movement and orthopedic disorders. We then use the insight gained from these analyses to aid the design of robotic assistive devices and treatment strategies, which are subsequently evaluated and refined using experimental and computational methods.
