Evaluation of an Adjustable Support Shoulder Exoskeleton

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018, 10:30 – 11:30 AM (Pacific)

Presented By: Logan Van Engelhoven, PhD

This presentation discusses the effects of adjusting the assistive torque amplitude of a shoulder supporting exoskeleton on muscle activity, preference, and perceived exertion during a variety of simulated workplace tasks. The study further evaluates the shoulderX architecture in terms of usability, performance, and open-ended feedback.

Learning Objectives

  • On completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe types of shoulder support exo & primary components

  • Discuss the effect of support amplitude on overall shoulder muscle activity

  • Recognize how detailed shoulder muscle activity can indicate preference

  • Summarize usability feedback regarding shoulderX architecture

Biographies

Logan Van Engelhoven graduated with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley’s Human Engineering and Robotics Lab focusing on industrial exoskeletons. He is an inventor of shoulderX and is currently working with suitX to refine the technology.
