Tommy Roussel of Louisville Automation and Robotics Research Institute (LARRI)


Robotics Research at the University of Louisville


Dr. Tommy Roussel is the Associate Director of LARRI and an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Louisville.  He has a BA in Chemistry from the University of New Orleans, an MS in Biomedical Engineering from Louisiana Tech, and the PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Louisville. Since 2015, Dr. Roussel has been developing an Aqueous Immersion Surgical System (AISS) to study the ability to perform surgical procedures in zero gravity during long-range space missions, such as when NASA sends humans to Mars. He is currently  developing a sensorized rocking chair “Rockin’Rehab” for pediatric spinal cord injury patients that includes a variety of sensors (force, tactile, rotation, acceleration, center of mass) to assess a patient’s level of trunk control, a fundamental metric that provides insight into improvements gained through a unique therapy called “Locomotor Training”.
