Memorial Hermann Hospital Robotics Laboratory developing robot-assisted rehabilitation technologies.
Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation Hospital Robotics and Rehabilitation Engineering unit develops upper limb wearable exoskeleton for robot-assisted rehabilitation for patients with stroke and spinal cord injury.
In the Robotics Laboratory, investigators are focused on the design, manufacture and evaluation of rehabilitation robotic devices for the upper limb. In collaboration with the department of Mechanical Engineering at Rice University, they aim to translate the latest innovations in robotic systems for rehabilitation following neurological injury to clinical practice. Robotic devices that are compatible with magnetic resonance imaging are used to gain insight into the neural basis of injury and recovery. Through the development of novel methods of sensing and control, researchers hope to detect user intent to formulate patient-centric therapies for maximum functional recovery.
