Human Performance & Wearable Robots
The NERVE Center features movement assessment and performance labs for evaluating human and robot capabilities.
The labs feature instruments to measure 3D ground reaction forces, 3D body kinematics, muscle activities, brain activities, metabolic cost, and joint torque and power.
Lab equipment includes an instrumented split-belt treadmill, motorized stationary bicycle, Vasper aerobic exercise machine, and IntelliStretch single-axis robotic device.
Biometric sensors include motion capture systems, EEG, EMG, wearable IMUs, and wearable metabolic measurement system.
