Pediatric Rehabilitation Technology Lab


The PRT lab examines how developing humans learn from their environment and interact with assistive technology, such as exoskeletons/wearable devices, socially assistive robots, and mechanical body support devices, providing valuable information to the areas of pediatric physical rehabilitation, developmental robotics, and human in-the-loop systems. Our research studies are designed based on principles from the areas of movement biomechanics, human-robot interaction, and developmental psychology, to identify the parameters that influence the learning and control of young humans' motor actions during their interaction with technology.
