Prof. Archambault's research focuses on the use of technology for the rehabilitation of physical disabilities. Specifically, he is involved in the development and testing of a simulator for the training of powered wheelchair driving skills. This simulator works on a standard computer, is low-cost, and can be used at home or in a clinical setting. Research thus far has shown that participants drive similarly in the simulator to how they would in a real wheelchair. An ongoing project is looking at the effects of simulator-training on real power wheelchair driving skills. In other research, Dr Archambault is investigating the effectiveness of robotic-based therapy to improve arm function in stroke patients. The robotic device works as a smart exercise system, providing assistance or resistance to arm movements, as required. His research is being conducted in his laboratory at the Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital, Laval, Quebec
