Developing an Ankle Exoskeleton to Assist the Mobility of Older Adults

MIE Assistant Professor Seungmoon Song was awarded a $747K NIH grant from the National Institute of Aging for “Simulation Framework to Develop Ankle Exoskeleton Gait Assistance for Older Adults.” The study will develop and evaluate how ankle-exoskeleton assistance affects metabolic energy consumption, walking speed, and pain during walking in healthy young and older adults, as well as in older adults with knee osteoarthritis.
