Exoskeleton in use Photo: From the Advanced Exoskeletons for Independent Mobility project. Paralysis, muscle weakness, and lack of coordination are common consequences of combat related injury to the central nervous or musculoskeletal systems that can prevent a return to active duty or independent performance of essential activities of daily living. APT Center Investigators continue to improve the design, fabrication and testing of the bracing systems consisting of unique electromechanical joints that lock and unlock in coordination with voluntary or stimulated muscle contractions to restore or assist independent walking and upright mobility. Dr. Selkirk is a clinical collaborator on this project.
