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.
