The Exoskeleton and Prosthetic Intelligent Controls (EPIC) Lab at Georgia Tech, led by Dr. Aaron Young, is devoted to the design and improvement of powered orthotic and prosthetic control systems. The EPIC lab has the ability to characterize robotic devices and controller implementation from the ground up, starting at fabrication and bench-top testing, to controller optimization, and ultimately, measuring the effects on human performance outcomes.

.@RobertDowneyJr here I come! Thrilled to try out the hip exosekeleton developed in the @GT_EPIC_Lab with Aaron Young, @dean_molinaro, and others! Thank you for letting me try it out!

I'm excited to announce that I'll be joining Northeastern in Jan 2022 as an Assistant Professor, with a joint appointment in Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Sciences, and Mechanical & Industrial Engineering. I can't wait to move to Boston and start this next phase!!

Nice day to walk with our recently built quasi-direct drive hip exo using an online ML-based exo controlleršŸ˜ @dean_molinaro @dongho__park @dawit_lee @GT_EPIC_Lab @MEGeorgiaTech @GTrobotics

You can read a bit more about our lab's back #exo in a new @GTResearchNews article!

This exosuit reduces the strain on the wearer's back and assists with repetitive lifting and twisting motions.

It was designed by assistant prof. Aaron Young and his colleagues in the @GT_EPIC_Lab and was recently described in a @IEEEXplore paper.
