Abstract
AdveNSys will develop a suite of products to provide new orthotic and prosthetic options for people with lower limb dysfunction or lower limb amputation. We will enhance our biologically-inspired adaptive neuromorphic control systems technology and integrate it with biomorphic compliant actuators, advanced sensor systems, and lightweight orthotic/prosthetic components to produce a suite of products to provide locomotion assistance. These systems will be used for acute-care in combat settings to provide functional bipedal mobility to injured soldiers. In addition, the systems will be used in post-acute and chronic care situations to enable injured individuals to more fully participate in a wide range of activities in military and civilian settings. AdveNSys will partner with clinical, industrial and academic research institutions to design, develop and evaluate this next-generation product suite that promises to revolutionize technology to overcome lower limb dysfunction both in military and civilian settings. The Phase II efforts will help mature the AdveNSys technology and deliver critical engineering models that will serve as the basis for development of production prototypes for mass production. It is a critical step in AdveNSys vision to Advancing Everyday Mobility for the 7.4 million people who currently use assistive technology devices for mobility impairments.
