INNOVATION | Getting started: NJIT doctoral students have the idea ... they just need the money

Kevin Abbruzzese drinks his water by the gallon. He then takes the plastic jugs, draws faces of cartoon characters on them and decorates the extended windowsill on the back wall of the cramped office he shares with two others at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. The jugs represent ideas — and they serve as a constant reminder. The Innovation Issue Bayer aiming to stay one step ahead — U.S. leader Dable: Innovation will help solve unmet needs Future farm: Indoor agriculture is happening today in downtown Newark Better Weather: Panasonic product, placed on wings of planes, is changing the forecast Predicting patients: ODH, with help from IBM's Watson, aims to change behavioral health The first pitch: Undergrads try to overwhelm judges with their business proposals Driving change: Partnerships with uber, Panasonic keep Hackensack out front Mobile messenger: SITO can deliver the right ad at the right time on your phone Labs and layups: Sixers turn portion of camden practice facility into an incubator “We need companies to invest in these technologies,” Abbruzzese said, taking stock of the room from behind his desk. “Otherwise, once we graduate, it just sits on a shelf.” The three graduate students — Abbruzzese, Madeline Corrigan and Kiran Karunakaran — are developing innovative exoskeleton technologies. They all are working on different aspects of wearable robotics that would aid medical patients who have lost physical mobility for one reason or another. For his part, Abbruzzese has developed a virtual reality platform aimed at helping physical therapy patients regain control of their upper body extremities, in which patients use wearable robotics to engage with virtual blocks. “The idea is that we can use this to interact with virtual environments (where patients) pinch down and grab blocks and, when they come into contact with these blocks, they can actually feel them,” he said. “My responsibilities (for the project) were to develop this function that trains hand movement.” Corrigan is also developing wearable robotics for upper extremities, though her focus to aid Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients in their day-to-day life. “It’s progressive, so patients lose their ability to walk, typically in their teenage years, and then they begin to lose their upper extremity function, which largely affects the ability to eat and drink independently or dress yourself,” she said. “Power wheelchairs are a popular option once people can’t walk, but there aren’t a lot of options for upper extremity devices.” The current technologies are called “passive devices,” which balance the arm with a spring to provide a sense of weightlessness to the arm. But these solutions, which offer a limited range of motion, are only temporary until the arm becomes too weak even for this assistance. To progress beyond this issue, all three projects utilize “admittance control,” or a force control. CONTINUE READING
