Locomotion & Energetics
Development of a Passive Elastic Exoskeletonfor Gait Rehabilitation
Sponsor: NIH/ National Institute of Child Health & Human Development | PI: Jesse Dean
The long-term goal of the proposed project is to develop an innovative gait rehabilitation device that is low-cost and more effective than current rehabilitation techniques. If successful, populations with limited gait function would be provided a more affordable method of gait rehabilitation that could allow them to practice assisted walking in more real world, non-clinical situations.
