Solav Biomechanical Interfaces Group
Towards enhanced comfort and health for prosthetics and orthotics users

The lab

Our group studies the biomechanical interface between the human body and biomedical devices such as prosthetics and orthotics. Our main goal is to develop and optimize patient-specific devices in order to improve patient comfort, health, and function. To achieve this, we analyze the biomechanical factors that affect human movement and function, and develop new imaging and measurement tools, computational algorithms, experimental procedures, and fabrication methods.
