Dr. Amir Jafari’s CAREER award entitled “A Prosthetic Elbow with Network of Soft and Modular Thermo-Active Actuators for Mobility Impaired Patients” aims to create fundamental innovation in wearable assistive robots by introducing a new paradigm for portable and powerful networks of modular soft actuators that work through liquid-gas phase transition. 


In ARM lab, we are conducting fundamental research in different areas including Soft Robotics, Bio-inspire Sensors and Actuators, Rehabilitation Robotics, Human Augmentations, Exoskeletons, Prosthesis and Haptic Devices. 

The main focus in ARMlab is on design and development of novel robotic platforms (including sensors, actuators, materials and mechanisms) that can physically interact with humans.
