How Focused Breathing Can Help Beat Everyday Stress

One way to deal with stress is to learn how to develop a relaxation response. Relaxation techniques targeted at decreasing and managing tension are highly successful in the reduction of stress, and also are effective in reducing pain.


Integrating Brain and Muscle Feedback for Hand Recovery

We will develop and evaluate a novel collaborative technology that combines biofeedback of two neural signals — electroencephalography (EEG), which records electrical activity of the brain, and electromyography (EMG), which records muscle movements — to promote movement therapy.

Research Project

Robotic Treadmill for Intense, Adaptive Propulsion Training

We will fabricate an innovative split-belt treadmill system that allows backward-directed, real-time-adaptive, resistive forces applied to the pelvis.

Research Project

Wearable Sensor for Encouraging Movement Practice

We will develop and pilot test a non-obtrusive wearable sensor that will will accurately measures important target movements, including steps, arm and hand activity, and specific limb movements.

Research Project

Smart Passive Devices for Arm Function Recovery

We have developed machine-assisted therapy techniques that focus on self-directed movement and error augmentation approaches to promote user engagement.

Research Project

An Adaptive Wearable Balance Trainer

Development of a therapy-ready collaborative balance trainer.

Research Project


Collaborative Machines Enhancing Therapies (COMET)

The Collaborative Machines Enhancing Therapies (COMET) center brings together four research and four development projects aimed at improving how patients move and are able to manage and use objects in everyday life.

Research Project

"Isogenic" approach to isolating the effects of single gene variations between patients who have suffered from neurotrauma.

"Neurotrauma in a Dish" - An induced pluripotent stem cell-based assay to determine patient specific factors affecting rehabilitation outcomes

Determining if patient induced pluripotent stem cell-derived neurons treated with in vitro neurotrauma can be used to predict clinical outcomes. The focus of this project is the common BDNF gene single nucleotide polymorphism Val66Met, which has been shown to have protective effects in the rehabilitation of patients with traumatic brain injury.

Research Project

Low Cost Hand

Low-Cost Arm System

A prosthetic arm and hand suitable both for individuals in the United States who lack adequate insurance and also for people in low-income countries without access to prosthetic care.

Research Project

Virtual Rehabilitation System

We are developing a commercially viable virtual rehabilitation system (called the Virtual Coach) that can be used among military members and civilians who have sustained limb loss.
