Stay focused on research

We engineer robust, high-performance hardware for robotics research.

Let others be distracted from their core research by student prototypes that need constant attention.

Rehab Research Device

Wrist torque measurement device

This device was designed to measure wrist torques. Since human joints do not have a single point of rotation, torque measurements are often confounded with linear forces that the joint is also supporting.

The device features free linear degree and passive gravity compensation so that the torque measurements can follow the body's natural instantaneous center of rotation. Measurements are isometric, so the device has spring loaded setup pins for rapid positioning to specific measurement angles.
