The Rehabilitation, Assistive Tech & Human Control Theory (REACT) Laboratory aims to design, develop, and evaluate electromechanical devices that restore, enhance and characterize human motor function. The laboratory supports a variety of undergraduate and graduate research projects. The laboratory contains bench space, hand tools and an industrial sewing machine for work with assistive devices. It contains two 6-axis load cells in scales suitable for biomechanical measurement, and a Speedgoat Target PC for research into short timescale human movement and reactions. It contains a 2DoF motion simulator for research into driver behavior and rehabilitation. The laboratory is available to mechanical engineering students Monday through Friday 8am – 10pm, but student access is restricted to properly trained research and teaching assistants on an as needed basis. This lab is located in Periera Hall, Room 134.
