Research Projects

Current WeBR Lab research thrusts are broadly in the design of robots, controllers, and devices to rehabilitate, assist, or augment motor function and communication.

Electromyographic Control

  • Intent Detection and Fatigue Compensation of glove-based exoskeletons
  • Intent Detection for low-cost prosthetics

Rehabilitation and Assistive Robotics

  • Impact of Gravity Compensation on upper extremity movement
  • SPAR Glove – assistive exoskeleton

Human-Robot Interaction and Haptics

Biomechanical and Motion Assessment

  • Estimation of finger joint impedance properties
  • IMU-based gait measures
