Opportunities

Here at the Rewire Lab, we have a number of open project directions looking for someone with the right skills to take over at both undergraduate and graduate levels.  In addition to the research projects listed below, we have undergraduate design projects with clinicians in the Austin area organized on an as-needed basis.  Please fill out this survey so we can better see where you can fit in.

Development of a low-cost gait rehabilitation robot for people with spinal cord injury

Robotic gait rehabilitation is currently in vogue with resource rich clinics, but unavailable to others.  Our goal is to develop a low-cost version using a kinematic mechanism.  Our goal is to bring mechanical gait rehabilitation to clinics and possibly to people's homes.

IMU Signal Analysis

A challenge with IMUs is that environmental factors can interfere with the signal.   The project will entail stabilizing IMU signals during overground walking.
