Flexible circuit for wearable sensor resting on hand

ASSIST Center looks to a self-sufficient future

Nine years in, the Center for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) has continued to lead the way in developing flexible, self-powering and wearable devices that will help both physicians and patients in monitoring human health across fields.

Student earns elite spot at national lab for wearable medical device research

Travis Peters, a doctoral candidate in materials science and engineering at ASSIST Partner Institution Penn State, will spend a year researching wearable electronics for medical use at Oak Ridge National Laboratory as part of an elite program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Researchers incorporate computer vision, uncertainty into AI for robotic prosthetics

Researchers have developed new software that can be integrated with existing hardware to enable people using robotic prosthetics or exoskeletons to walk in a safer, more natural manner on different types of terrain. The new framework incorporates computer vision into prosthetic leg control, and includes robust artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that allow the software to better account for uncertainty.
