Current Projects

Child-Robot Interaction

The aim of this project is to assess if child-robot interaction can be used as a tool to enhance the child's mobility and exploration of an open environment.

Technology: Socially Assistive Robots

Collaborators:

Herbert Tanner, PhD (University of Delaware)James Cole Galloway, PhD, FAPTA (University of Delaware)Rene Vidal, PhD (Johns Hopkins University)Jeffrey Heinz, PhD (Stony Brook University)

Real - World Mobility Training

The goal in this series of projects is to examine the feasibility of novel open-area body weight support systems for motor training outside of the lab/clinic and to assess changes in motor function of children with various mobility challenges.

Technology: Portable Body Weight Support Systems

Collaborators:

James Cole Galloway, PhD, FAPTA (University of Delaware)

Projects Under Development

Upper Extremity Motor Training

The goal of this project is to develop and assess the feasibility of a novel soft robotic wearable device that provides arm mobility assistance in very young children with arm motor impairments.

Technology: Exoskeleton

Collaborators:

Konstantinos Karydis, PhD (UC Riverside)Will Grover, PhD (UC Riverside)

More new projects will be soon announced!
