Summer 2016 Pedalong development

Mechanical design of a test rig for the pedaling apparatus is complete, materials have been purchased and components are being machined.  All of my mechanical engineering graduate student assistants have found summer internships, but will return in the fall.

To make Pedalong a better therapeutic device, we are developing instrumentation to measure many parameters of use and software to record and display the results. Two electrical engineering graduate students are using an Arduino microprocessor and associated sensors to measure and wirelessly transmit the data to a laptop computer.

My professional expert witness activity has recently included learning about inter partes review of patent claim invalidity.  For more information on my career see
