Human beings possess remarkable mobility and dexterity, from bipedal gait to individuated movement of the fingers.  Unfortunately, this exquisite motor control can be impaired by neurologic or musculoskeletal injury or disease. 

Biology
Machine

To optimally employ devices to restore function, a thorough understanding of both the underlying human biomechanics and the mechanics of the device is needed.  Knowledge of the mechanics of both systems fundamentally benefits the design of symbiotic controllers and the adoption of characteristics which improve user perception and acceptance.
