Rehabilitation devices and robots (such as exoskeletons) are often expensive to develop and test. However, computers now allow for these devices and their effect on an individual wearing them to be simulated using musculoskeletal modeling. In this project, we will be developing controls for rehabilitation devices and simulating their effects with the intent of building physical devices in the future.
