Engineering) is developing a wearable hand orthosis for stroke survivors that provides meaningful assistance with daily manipulation tasks. Our device attempts to meet a need for rehabilitative devices that are versatile and usable without clinical supervision. We are seeking an undergraduate researcher to assist us in integration of sensors into fabrics by developing and testing sensors, wire interconnects, and hardware systems. The undergrad will be expected to learn more about wearable electronics, hardware engineering, and accessible design for assistive technologies.
Qualifications: Basic experience in Arduino, and CAD/Solidworks desired, as well as enthusiasm for novel manufacturing techniques, manual assembly and prototyping.
Eligibility: Sophomore, Junior, Senior; SEAS only
