KINARM Labs

Our research program examines coordination and adaptive learning of limb movements and how regions of the brain are involved in these tasks. We use two different robotic devices called KINARM™ (Kinesiological Instrument for Normal and Altered Reaching Movements).  The first device is the robotic exoskeleton (EXO)  in which the subject is seated with arms fitted into supporting troughs.  The second KINARM™ is the End-Point version (EP) which can be used in standing or seated posture.  We have KINARM Exoskeleton labs for use in Abramsky Hall, Kingston General Hospital (KGH), Hotel Dieu Hospital (HDH) and Providence Care Hospital (PCH). We have End-Point labs for use in Abramsky Hall and KGH.
