The mission of the Locomotor Control Systems Laboratory is to develop high-performance wearable control systems (e.g., prostheses and orthoses) to enable mobility and improve quality of life for persons with disabilities. We approach this needs-driven research from the perspective of dynamical systems and control theory, investigating and translating concepts from legged robotics into transformative solutions for physical rehabilitation. Located at both UT Dallas and the UT Southwestern Medical Center, the laboratory is a highly interdisciplinary environment dedicated to scientific innovation, clinical translation, and individual career development.
