On Wednesday, November 17, Frank Hammond and the Chief Engineer of Pediatric Technology at Georgia Tech, Leanne West, will discuss some of the work being performed in robotics as it relates to pediatric healthcare. He will share his experience with robotic devices, particularly of a halo traction device for kids with severe scoliosis and a Wearable Pediatric Sensory Transfer Device for Improved Neuromotor Control of Impaired Limbs and Powered Prostheses and Orthoses. 

Frank L. Hammond III, Ph.D., joined George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering in April 2015. Prior to this appointment, he was a postdoctoral research affiliate and instructor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT and a Ford postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He received his Ph.D. in 2010 from Carnegie Mellon University.
