The purposes of the Human-Centric Design Research Lab are
(1) to advance the
understanding of human movement capabilities by means of modeling, simulation
and experimentation, and develop computer software package that facilitates
human-centric design, biomechanics analysis, ergonomics assessment, injury
prediction, traffic safety system including digital human visibility
prediction and human performance assessment.
(5) to promote human
lives by developing novel medical devices such as hand/foot prosthesis, and
(7) to prevent falls for patients/the elderly in hospitals.
Our research has been funded by multiple sponsors including the US Army, DOE, NSF, NASA, NIST, NPSF, NIOSH, Honda R&D North Americas, Caterpillar, and USCAR.
