Engineers Develop Adaptive Robotic Ankle

Here is a robotic ankle that allows wearers to easily adapt to uneven surfaces. Vanderbilt engineers have developed it to conform to the surface the foot is on using a tiny motor, actuator, sensors, and chip. It makes it easier to walk on different surfaces and walk up and down the stairs.

The actuator is used to simulate human leg muscles. You can find out more here.
