Wednesday, February 26 • 3:30pm - 5:30pm
North Carolina State University Human Physiology of Wearable Robotics Lab – PoWeR Lab

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Because…exoskeletons for humans! Dr. Greg Sawicki’s PoWeR Lab looks to the human body for inspiration to design and develop robotic devices that you wear. State of the art equipment, infrared cameras and ultrasound imaging give the team a unique look at muscle/motor movement to design “carbon fiber boots” and prosthetics that can improve or restore locomotion. Dr. Sawicki recently received a grant from NIH to compare and develop robotic ankle exoskeletons for healthy and stroke-impaired locomotion. This lab will be an exciting prelude to our Saturday CONVERGE speakers who will talk about online collaborations that are developing 3D printed prosthetics.

Leave hotel at 3:30, tour 4-5pm, return 5:30 (tentative, waiting on lab to confirm)
Transportation: TBD
