Robotic trunk to aid spinal cord injury patients

Date: 08 January 2020 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • A Columbia Engineering team has invented a robotic device that can be used to assist and train people with spinal cord injuries to sit more stably.
  • The device works by improving their trunk control, gaining an expanded active sitting workspace without falling over or using their hands to balance.
  • The robotic trunk is a motorised-cable driven belt placed on the user’s torso to determine the postural control limits and sitting workspace area in people with spinal cord injuries.
  • It delivers forces on the torso when the user performs upper body movements beyond the postural stability limits while sitting
  • Spinal cord injuries (SCI) can cause devastating damage, including loss of mobility and sensation.
