Job Description

Position Description

  • Work with the team to develop design specifications for actuation, transmission and interface components for wearable robot embodiments and contribute to the conceptualization, detailed design, fabrication, and testing of these components. Develop work plans for how components will be integrated into functional wearable devices.
  • Create technical drawings/sketches and representations of conceptual and detailed designs so that they can be shared with team members and outside vendors.
  • Assist with the testing of wearable robotics components on benchtop models and during lab-based and field-based human subject testing experiments.
  • Collect and document feedback and identify necessary metrics to measure and optimize various system parameters against functional requirements as well as identify new technologies applicable to wearable robotic systems.
  • Contribute to the preparation of demonstration prototypes, internal reports, patent applications, and presentations. Report on goals and deliverables to project stakeholders and provide progress updates at regular team meetings.

Basic Qualifications

  • BS or equivalent degree in mechanical or electrical engineering or a related degree.
