Congratulations to Dr. Kat Steele on her NSF CAREER Award!
As a recipient, Dr. Steele will focus on individuals who rely on orthoses for assistance while walking, such as cerebral palsy and stroke survivors, in order to improve human ability. Neuromuscular control and musculoskeletal dynamics will be modeled from motion capture in order to create simulations. Dynamic simulation provides an ideal framework to specify and test different neuromuscular control strategies and expand our ability to design optimized exoskeletons. For more information, click HERE.
