Drs. Joel Stein and Matei T. Ciocarlie awards NSF grant to develop a powered hand orthosis

The National Science Foundation awarded a $600,000 grant to Drs. Joel Stein and Matei Ciocarlie as part of the National Robotics Initiative for a project entitled "Active Tendon-Driven Orthosis for Prehensile Manipulation after Stroke."

This project is intended to further develop wearable powered tendon-driven hand orthoses as a exercise training tool for hemiparetic stroke survivors.  For more information, please contact Lauri Bishop, DPT, at lb2413@columbia.edu or (212) 305-6095.
