Cornelia Fermüller, an associate research scientist in UMIACS, is part of a multidisciplinary team that is developing a portable robotic glove to improve hand function in stroke patients.

Fermüller is working with Jaydev Desai (UMD mechanical engineering) and Kelly Westlake (UMB rehabilitation science) to develop and test a camera-assisted, robotic exoskeleton with a custom-designed glove.
