New research affiliation with Shriners Hospitals for Children

We are very excited about the new research affiliation between Georgia Tech and Shriners Hospitals for Children! Our lab is partnering with Shriners to further development of a robotic knee exoskeleton designed to assist children with crouch gait, a common gait condition in individuals with cerebral palsy. To read more about the GT-Shriners affiliation, see the article here.
