The Programmable and Reconfigurable Soft Engineered Systems (PARSES) lab is a multi-disciplinary group at Northeastern University in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (College of Engineering) and Physical Therapy, Movement, and Rehabilitation Sciences (PTMRS, Bouvé College of Health Sciences).
We work on challenges related to the design and engineering of soft actuators, wearable devices, and soft robotics, with focuses on:
Design of novel morphology, soft material mechanical sensors
Scalable fabrication approaches of multifunctional and active materials
Design of origami-inspired, sensorized soft actuators
Applications of wearables and robotics to healthcare and physical rehabilitation
