We are developing several rehabilitation robotic systems for gait training for individuals with neurological impairments, which include portable lower limb exoskeletons with cable drive and robotic walker for over-ground gait training. We are now in a stage of clinical trials.
This research aims to develop the fundamental enabling technologies for the development of the next generation wearable robotics. In particular, we will focus on the following key research areas: a) Bio-inspired compliant and force controllable actuators with variable impedance for safer human robot interaction; b) Novel mechanism design, such as cable drive mechanism to achieve lightweight wearable robotics; c) Novel sensing technologies for human motion intent detection with wearable sensors and machine learning algorithms for gait kinematics and gait phase detection; d) Novel bio-signal processing techniques for both EEG and EMG for brain machine interface and biofeedback; e) Intelligent control systems for better human robot interaction control.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with PhD degrees with the following relevant research background to apply: clinical study of rehabilitation robots, biomechanics of human walking, sensory-motor control, rehabilitation and assistive engineering, electromechanical dynamic systems modeling and control, robot control, human robot interaction, bio signal processing and machine learning.
