Intelligent Assistive Methods

  • Metabolic Cost Estimation

    Metabolic cost is an used as an indication of the stable and optimal walking conditions. This steady state metabolic rate is a measure of respiratory rate which in turn dependent on breath-by-breath o2 and co2 measures. The primary objective of this project determining the steady-state metabolism in a short duration.

  • HIL Optimization for Ankle-foot Prosthesis

    This project will develop approaches to improving walking comfort and mobility of individuals with below knee amputation by characterizing the effects of prosthesis mechanical function on the residuum-socket interface pressures and exploring means of optimizing prosthetic foot stiffness for user comfort.
