$1.7M to build everyday exoskeletons to assist with lifting, walking and climbing stairsThe modular exoskeleton system will help workers and the elderly, boosting ankle, knee and/or hip joints by mounting new motors to off-the-shelf orthotics.
New grant to expand open source control software for an intuitive robotic prosthetic leg
University of Michigan researchers have been awarded an NSF grant to design an open source framework for robotic prosthetic legs that function more naturally and offer a wider range of capabilities.
Space motor helps make robotic prosthetic leg more comfortable and extends battery life
Getting rid of some gears enabled a free-swinging knee, regenerative braking and brought the noise level down from vacuum cleaner to fridge.
