The Center for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology focuses on restoring health, mobility, independence and societal participation to individuals with disabilities by:
- Studying the interdisciplinary science of human movement, called biomechanics/neuromechanics,
- Designing, developing and controlling next-generation assistive and rehabilitative technologies, such as prosthetic limbs and robotic exoskeletons,
- Performing human subject experiments in our state-of-the-art motion analysis lab to measure if and how much these technologies help users,
- Training engineers and scientists to be the future leaders and innovators in the fields of biomechanics, biomechatronics, human augmentation, and neuromotor rehabilitation engineering.
