Wide-Range of Research at Recent Advanced User Workshop

The NCSRR hosted 26 individuals from around the world at our Advanced User Workshop from March 28-30, 2018. During the three-day event, individuals worked closely with the NCSRR staff to advance their projects on a wide-range of topics, including analysis of dynamic function in adult spinal deformity; simulating the impact of glenohumeral joint loading and muscle compensation on rotator cuff tear severity; and personalizing exoskeleton controller design for assisted walking. Learn more about these and other workshop projects<https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/19ifuyvCdZp4IzvCoUPcEwNKbr4FfAivPMfPplj_0aCM/edit#slide=id.g36031fdf5c_0_0>.
