Joint Rehab/Regen Monthly Meeting

Dr. Mengmeng Zhu, Smart Healthcare Analytics and Reliability Eningeering (SHARE) Laboratory

Dr. Mengmeng Zhu discussed her work on the analysis of hardware and software reliability and inter-compatibility. A Markov-based unified reliability model for which incorporated failures due to hardware, failures due to software and failure due to hardware/software interaction was presented as a method for improving realibility predictions. Dr. Zhu also presented the identification of environmental factors for smart health wearable devices (SHWD) which are important to users. This work performed principal component analysis of 123 identified environmental factors relevant to SHWDs and identified 18  principal components. This analysis identifies directions for improving SHWDs in the future.

Joint Rehab/Regen Monthly Meeting

Dr. Hyung-Soon Park, Neuro-Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory

Dr. Hyung-Soon Park discussed his work with exoskeletons and prostheses. New synthetic skins for prosthetics were descibred, these synthetic skins are designed to mimic the appearance of real skin and incorporate mechanical properties of skin for improved stability and robustness of interaction with everyday objects.
