Assistive Rehabilitation System
We are focusing on the development of assistive devices for individuals with stroke, spinal cord injury, essential tremor and other neuromuscular disorder. We are currently developing a full-arm exoskeleton, controlled via electromyograpy (EMG) and encephalography (EEG). We are currently testing our systems on stroke volunteers at the Brain Behavior Laboratory, UBC hospital.
