Project Overview

public/IMG_4226 resize.jpg

This website outlines the design and implementation of a biomechatronic device that measures upper extremity motion via physiological and biophysical data. Motion detection sensors were used in conjuntion with surface electrodes to monitor joint angle and electromyographic signals, respectively. The overall focus of this project is to benefit research in the Biomechatronic Learning Lab with the Electrical Engineering Department at RIT. The completed prototype will serve as a platform for the development of assistive devices for upper extremity rehabilitation.
