Neurobionics Lab at the University of Michigan

In the Neurobionics Lab at the University of Michigan, we learn about how locomotion is controlled by the nervous system, so we can build better, more lifelike robotic assistive technologies. To this end, we apply small disturbances to the legs during locomotion and measure how the brain governs our biomechanical response.  We fit mathematical models to these data, which provides a better blueprint for innovative robotic prostheses and exoskeletons.

In one half of our laboratory, we use the higher resolution Vicon Vantage V8s to capture the small changes in limb kinematics that occur as part of our disturbances.

In the other half of the lab, we use the Vero cameras coupled with our instrumented treadmill, to test our novel assistive technologies.

Together, these systems provide the precision and accuracy needed for our biomechanical modeling, as well as enable the flexibility to test our technologies that will soon improve the lives of people with disabilities.
