Rehabilitation Biomechanics Laboratory
Helping improve performance with prosthetic devices
The Rehabilitation Biomechanics Laboratory studies how people perform and control repetitive movements, specifically using orthotic and prosthetic devices. Through various collaborations on and off campus, we are working to improve devices, test their effectiveness, and ultimately make controlling them more intuitive for users.
