Strategy Based on Human Reflexes May Keep Legged Robots and Prosthetic Legs From Tripping
November 18, 2015. Trips and stumbles too often lead to falls for amputees using leg prosthetics, but a robotic leg prosthesis being developed at Carnegie Mellon University promises to help users recover their balance by using techniques based on the way human legs are controlled.
An Unpowered Exoskeleton Springs Into Action: Researchers Increase Walking Efficiency
April 01, 2015. Carnegie Mellon University’s Steve Collins and his collaborator Greg Sawicki at North Carolina State University have discovered a way to make humans more efficient at walking. In a new report in the journal Nature, they describe a lightweight, unpowered, wearable exoskeleton they developed to reduce the energy cost of human walking.
