Researchers develop an integrated method to measure stability during walking

Researchers at Georgia Tech funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation have developed an integrated approach to studying the biomechanics of falls and how the legs, joints and muscles act as a system to respond. … The scientists intended to broaden the understanding of how devices like exoskeletons affect human muscle mechanics and walking stability. The team came up with a new, more comprehensive way of measuring stability that helps answer the question of how muscle mechanics, exoskeletons, and stability work together to react to falls.
