Wearable Device Design and Biomechanical Research at Sandia National Labs
MetadataShow full item record
Musculoskeletal biomechanics research has provided numerous important insights into human movement that inform the design of assistive devices. These devices have the potential to retore or rehabilitate lost function, augment performance, and reduce injury risk to individuals in physically demanding jobs. This talk will describe research and development of wearable devices at Sandia National Laboratories, including wearable haptics for motion feedback, smart prosthetic sockets, and wearable robotic devices aimed at injury prevention and performance augmentation. Sandia has several active robotics programs and is working to further grow our team and capabilities.
