Consortium Institution: Northeastern University

Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a research university with a defining focus on use-inspired research and a strong record of collaboration with colleagues in the clinic and in industry. Grounded in its signature cooperative education program, or co-op, the University's rapidly growing research enterprise engages the talents of its faculty and student body in developing solutions to real world problems. Northeastern's research infrastructure includes six national research centers designated by federal agencies, including centers of excellence in sensing and imaging, translational nanomedicine, nanomanufacturing and healthcare systems engineering. Northeastern joined CIMIT's Consortium in 2010. This collaboration offers state-of-the-art technology and engineering research resources for clinically-based innovators in the Boston area.

news@Northeastern: A Firm Grasp on Engineering Solutions
Northeastern University engineering researchers are developing new sensing technology that would provide doctors with dynamic tools to measure the progress of patients undergoing physical therapy from stroke and other injuries. Under a separate grant from CIMIT, they will apply this technology to designing a customizable orthosis brace with embedded sensors to fit around the Achilles tendon and stabilize the ankle and foot, so patients who have just suffered a stroke can more safely walk and move around.
