Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Control theory
  • Mechanical engineering

Ankle, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Kinematics, Simulation and Prosthesis are his primary areas of study. The Ankle study combines topics in areas such as Physical therapy and Impedance control. His work deals with themes such as Mechanics, Gait analysis and Biomechanics, which intersect with Kinematics.

As a member of one scientific family, Hugh M. Herr mostly works in the field of Mechanics, focusing on Energetics and, on occasion, Treadmill and Stiffness. In his study, Control theory is strongly linked to Phase, which falls under the umbrella field of Stiffness. Hugh M. Herr works mostly in the field of Simulation, limiting it down to topics relating to Torque and, in certain cases, Magnetorheological fluid.

His most cited work include:

  • Lower Extremity Exoskeletons and Active Orthoses: Challenges and State-of-the-Art (902 citations)
  • Adaptive control of a variable-impedance ankle-foot orthosis to assist drop-foot gait (599 citations)
  • 2008 Special Issue: Powered ankle-foot prosthesis to assist level-ground and stair-descent gaits (376 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Hugh M. Herr mainly investigates Ankle, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Control theory, Simulation and Torque. His Ankle research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gait, Gastrocnemius muscle, Work, Physical therapy and Prosthesis. His research integrates issues of Kinematics, Amputation and Biomechanics in his study of Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

The concepts of his Kinematics study are interwoven with issues in Human leg and Mechanics. His research on Control theory also deals with topics like

  • Stiffness which is related to area like Elasticity,
  • Robot together with Microcontroller. Many of his research projects under Simulation are closely connected to Finite-state machine with Finite-state machine, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ankle (26.73%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (26.73%)
  • Control theory (23.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (26.73%)
  • Ankle (26.73%)
  • Amputation (10.60%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Ankle, Amputation, Proprioception and Biomedical engineering. Hugh M. Herr has included themes like Above knee amputation, Sensory system, Knee Joint and Prosthesis in his Physical medicine and rehabilitation study. His Ankle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Treadmill, Gait, Work, Exoskeleton and Range of motion.

His Gait study incorporates themes from Physical therapy, Kinematics and Swing. His Biomedical engineering research includes themes of Finite element method, Electrophysiology, Prosthetic socket and Biomechanics. His Biomechanics study deals with Ground reaction force intersecting with Orthotic device, Joint stiffness and Stiffness.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Biomechanical walking mechanisms underlying the metabolic reduction caused by an autonomous exoskeleton (96 citations)
  • Proprioception from a neurally controlled lower-extremity prosthesis (49 citations)
  • MultiDIC: An Open-Source Toolbox for Multi-View 3D Digital Image Correlation (31 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering

His primary scientific interests are in Proprioception, Neuroscience, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Amputation and Optogenetics. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation study combines topics in areas such as Knee Joint and Residual limb, Prosthesis. Hugh M. Herr combines subjects such as Orthotic device, Physical therapy, Ground reaction force, Inverse dynamics and Exoskeleton with his study of Knee Joint.

His study in Prosthesis focuses on Prosthetic knee in particular. His EtherCAT research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biomedical engineering and Biomechanics. His Biomechanics research includes elements of Ankle, Treadmill, Finite element method and Prosthetic socket.
