Sudeesh Subramanian

Dr. Sudeesh Subramanian is a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Texas Tech University. He has a wide range of research experience in the field of biomechanics and human-centric product development. His current research projects at Texas Tech University mainly include the development of a Next-Generation Firefighter Helmet and a Mission-Adaptive Modular Law Enforcement Helmet. He also investigates the biomechanical aspects of using assistive devices such as upper exoskeleton devices for masonry works and different helmet designs using motion capture-EMG systems and musculoskeletal model simulations.
He also worked as a Research Associate at the Defence Bioengineering and Electromedical Laboratory (DEBEL), Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Bangalore, India, where he worked on developing various exoskeleton devices for load-carrying assistance and material handling operations specific to military applications. Also, a method for ground reaction force and moment estimation using kinematics from inertial sensors was developed, which is a requirement for testing exoskeleton devices in the actual working scenario.
Sudeesh's PhD thesis was on Swing phase analysis of transfemoral prosthesis users walking with passive knees. He studied the biomechanical aspects of walking with different passive prosthetic knees and developed virtual engineering techniques for their faster development. His PhD research work contributed towards the development of an indigenous polycentric knee
(KADAM). Additionally, he had developed a gait simulator that physically simulate walking with prosthetic legs. Such a device can reduce user trials during the early stages of product development.
Dr. Sudeesh Subramanian’s overall goal is to improve the quality of life of people with impairments and reduces the chances of impairments for those who work in tiresome/difficult environment.
