Dr. Antonie van den Bogert, an internationally renowned researcher in biomechanics, has been named the Parker Hannifin Endowed Chair in Human Motion and Control and will begin work this Fall in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at CSU's Fenn College of Engineering. He is best known for his innovative work analyzing human movement and the development of computer simulation methods to study the effects of neuromuscular control and mechanical devices on human movement.  The endowment includes funding for a new laboratory and illustrates Parker's continuing commitment to partner with engineering programs to further its own research and development initiatives.

"We feel that this partnership holds great promise as a catalyst for innovation in the field of assistive motion technology," said Craig Maxwell, Vice President – Technology and Innovation.  "This developing field is a natural extension for Parker, leveraging our broad technical competency in motion and control. This is a fundamental first step toward what we believe will be a series of transformational products serving people with mobility impairments."
