About Me

My primary research work is currently based on designing a Knee joint for a Hybrid Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Exoskeleton. The design of the system has to be energy and weight efficient. In order to do so a model was developed in Solidworks and weight of the parts were estimated. Based on the design the parts are currently manufactured. A quasi- passive mechanism using torsion springs and solenoids were chosen. The preliminary focus of my work is to estimate the lifetime of the working mechanism.

Apart from my primary research I am also looking into wearable robotics that could augment human running and hopping. Biomechanics of human running can be considered as a one dimensional spring mass system. Based on this estimation a wearable device is designed and it is currently in the process of testing.
