Improve walking with a little boost at just the right time
Biomechanics researchers at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, led by Philippe Malcolm, PhD, have developed a controllable waist tether to optimize human locomotion.
The controllable waist tether can be personalized for various rehabilitation or athletic performance applications based on a user’s biometric data.
The device provides timed pulls on the user’s waist from a motorized pulley system.
Initial therapeutic applications are currently under investigation for peripheral arterial disease.
