Michael and Bradley, both undergraduate researchers in the Ability and Innovation Lab, have individually earned the title of Mary Gates Scholars. The Mary Gates Research Scholarship is highly competitive and allows students to focus more attention and time on their research projects while being supported financially for two quarters. Michael will continue working on the ankle foot orthosis (AFO) project which utilizes motion tracking, ultrasound, and finite element analysis to find the optimal stiffness. Bradley will be developing a low-cost, open source orthosis to improve mobility for individuals with impaired hand function. Congratulations to you both!
