Study of muscle mechanics could lead to better running 'blades' for amputees
from O&P News
A researcher at the University of Idaho is studying the muscle interactions of runners to help companies design better prostheses. Craig McGowan, PhD, an assistant professor of biological sciences, along with the help of students is developing a computer simulation that models the interactions of running-specific prostheses, often called "blades," with the body.
