Biomechanics, Haptics, Robotics, Assistive Devices
Dr. Welker's research focuses on developing effective assistive devices that assist those with movement impairments or augment everyday movement in the healthy population to reduce fatigue or injury. She uses an interdisciplinary approach combining expertise in biomechanics, haptics, and robotics in order to provide a greater understanding of the entire human-device system, with research spanning from the development of novel devices, control strategies, forms of sensory augmentation, and design of human subject experiments that provide further insight to the human neuromusculoskeletal system.
