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, KGH and HDH.  The KGH site currently has two versions of the Exoskeleton, the classic version and the newest design where the motors have been moved to under the shoulder (UTS design).   

 

KGH EP

 

This KINARM may be used in seated or standing posture and a full harness system is available. This lab is also equipped with integrated force plates.   Eye tracking is available with this system.Photo credit:  Matthew Manor, KHSC

Location is currently in Connell 4 in the WJ Henderson Centre for Patient-Oriented Research within the Centre for Neuroscience Suite, Room 02.4.031.  

The phone number to the lab is 613-549-6666 ext. 4100.

Parking is available in the underground lot on Stuart St.

To book this robot, please contact Kim Moore.  Bookings are available on a calendar system through Queen's University (currently the same calendar as the EXO Classic).
