Robotics for Training of Human Gait, Posture, and Balance

Friday, May 5, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Abstract: Neural disorders limit the ability of humans to perform activities of daily living. Robotics is emerging as a tool for training of human skills and functional movements. Robotics also provides a way to probe the human neuromuscular system by simulating external conditions. Our group at Columbia University Robotics and Rehabilitation (ROAR) Laboratory has designed innovative robot platforms for training of gait, posture, and balance. The talk will describe innovative designs of these robots and human experiments with these designs. The experiments were targeted at elderly subjects with disorders and patients with stroke, cerebral palsy, and spinal cord injury to improve their balance and gait.
