Recycling energy for easier walking
from Today's Medical Developments
Engineers from the University of Michigan, the developers of an artificial foot that recycles energy otherwise wasted in between steps, say that it could make it easier for amputees to walk. "For amputees, what they experience when they are trying to walk normally is what I would experience if I were carrying an extra 30 lb," says Art Kuo, professor in the University of Michigan departments of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
