Check out this Michigan Robotics press release about the Open Source Leg!

Dr. Rouse, Dr. Levi Hargrove, and teams from Michigan Robotics and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab executed an on-stage demo of the Open Source Leg (OSL) at the Amazon Re:Mars conference in Las Vegas, NV. A man named Terry, who has a transfemoral amputation, walked across the stage and climbed up and down stairs wearing the OSL controlled using Dr. Hargrove’s state-of-the-art intent recognition system. You can watch their talk and see the demo here

Welcome to our newest lab member, Dr. Varun Joshi! Varun will be working as a postdoc co-advised by Dr. Rouse and Dr. Chandramouli Krishnan (department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation). Varun completed his PhD at Ohio State University under the direction of Professor Manoj Srinivasan.
