Personal profile

Allison Goldman is currently an M.E.Sc. candidate in Electrical Engineering (Biomedical Systems stream) at Western University. Since September 2015, she has worked under the supervision of Dr. Ana Luisa Trejos in the Wearable Mechatronics Laboratory; prior to this, she received her B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at Queen’s University. Her thesis project is the development of a tool for remote monitoring of the upper limb for MSD physical rehabilitation. Her work involves designing a biosignal acquisition sleeve, an EMG sensing module, and the exploration of sensor fusion techniques.

Brandon Edmonds

Personal profile

Brandon Edmonds was born in Georgetown, Ontario, in1991. He received his B.E.Sc. degree in Mechatronic Systems Engineering from Western University in 2015, including a 16-month internship at General Motors (May 2013 – August 2014). In September, 2015, he joined the Wearable Mechatronics Laboratory to pursue an M.E.Sc. degree in Biomedical Robotics. His current research interests include EMG signal acquisition, biomimetic actuators, control systems, and biocompatible exoskeleton design. His thesis proposal is based on the rehabilitation of upper limbs using wearable mechatronics systems, the major goal of which is to design a state-of-the-art elbow brace for active motion control and assistance.
