The Closed-Loop Engineering Research (CLEAR) core (https://www.clear-ncsu-unc.com/), consisting of faculty members at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) and North Carolina State University (NC State), is seeking two postdoctoral fellows to participate in a new training program, Combined Human and Rehabilitative Machine System (CHARMS). The fellows will be supported by an Advanced Rehabilitation Research and Training award provided by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research. The goal of the program is to develop the next generation of rehabilitation researchers by focusing on training in three areas: mechanics, controls, and perception. Each postdoctoral fellow will be mentored by a team of faculty members spanning these areas.
The postdoctoral fellow will be able to explore opportunities at North Carolina’s two flagship universities: the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) and North C...
Inspired by the mission of the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill and NC State University to unite engineering and medicine to improve lives, ten students and two pilots (persons with disabilities) are embarking on a journey of learning, compassion, science and action in the 2020 CYBATHLON.
The 2020 CYBATHLON is an international obstacle course race that brings people with disabilities and technology innovators together to drive the development of the newest assistance systems. Six separate courses will challenge the students to devise a prosthetic that will enable the pilot to successfully complete the course within the designated time limit. The Team Out of the Gait is the first university-based team from the United States to register for the 2020 CYBATHLON.
