|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.
