Our Research Focuses
We strive to base all that we do on the latest scientific evidence and are actively engaged in the study of human movement and development of technologies to enhance human motion. Much of this work is performed and disseminated in collaboration with other organizations we are proud to call our partners. Our core research and development areas include:
We are continuously improving and expanding the capabilities of Caplex in ways we think are most responsive to the needs of the community. Head over to Products > In Development page to view our newest additions to the platform.
We are applying Caplex to the exploration of critical design questions in the pursuit of more effective prosthetic, orthotic, and exoskeleton devices.
We are exploring the application of Caplex technology to enable test-drive strategies to inform the design & selection of prosthetics & orthotics in clinical practice.
New topics and device types we are beginning to explore include:
