Students Develop Exoskeleton App to Help Patients with Muscular Dystrophy

Right now, the future of the app can only go forward!

Mobile Maestro is in and of itself a commercially viable option, student-developed or not. As it helps people move around, it also collects data on how the app is being used. The MSU team analyzes where small adjustments and improvements that can be made in order to maximize functionality. 

What’s better yet is that the team has a direct way of getting feedback from Zach Smith.

“I like that the app is very simple and, because it’s on my phone, it’s always in my reach if I need to adjust the arms,” Smith said. “I believe that with the arms being powered by this app, that they’ll be able to be used to their full potential.”
