Profile Summary

Dr. Adamczyk directs the UW Biomechatronics, Assistive Devices, Gait Engineering and Rehabilitation Laboratory (UW BADGER Lab) which aims to enhance physical and functional recovery from orthopedic and neurological injury through advanced robotic devices. We study the mechanisms by which these injuries impair normal motion and coordination, and target interventions to encourage recovery and/or provide biomechanical assistance. Our work primarily addresses impairments affecting walking, running, and standing. Core engineering research includes development and control of advanced semi-active foot prostheses, rehabilitation robots and wearable sensor systems. We apply these developments to advance assessment and rehabilitation in persons with lower limb amputation, balance impairments, hemiparesis, and other mobility challenges.
