Robotic Spine Exoskeleton Measures Torso Stiffness in 3D

A Robotic Spine Exoskeleton (RoSE) developed by Columbia University researchers is reportedly the first device able to measure 3D stiffness of the human torso. The researchers, from Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science, suggest that the RoSE may solve a number of limitations in the spinal braces currently in use and lead to new treatments for spinal deformities. Their study, which looked at in vitro measurements of torso stiffness and characterized the three-dimension...
