Research Description

Combined Mobility Base-Orthosis (COMBO)

Supervisors: Drs. Mike Van der Loos and Jaimie Borisoff

My project involves the development of a virtual prototyping tool using OpenSim for the evaluation of new assistive devices for those with mobility impairments. In particular, this tool will be used to study the power requirements of a new mobility device which aims to merge the benefits of a manual wheelchair with those of a walking exoskeleton.
