Robotic-Leg Prosthetic Allows Amputees To Walk Normally




Simplified gait model eliminates need for complex designs and team of physical-rehabilitation specialists.

Wearers of a new robotic leg can walk on a moving treadmill almost as fast as an able-bodied person, said inventor Robert Gregg, PhD, a University of Texas at Dallas professor, who applied robot control theory to enable powered prosthetics to dynamically respond to the wearer’s environment and help amputees walk…
