Developing Terrain Adaptive Robotic Prosthetic Legs

Prosthetic legs are getting more advanced all the time. Plenty of researchers are working to make them more comfortable for their users. Biomechatronics researcher Roman Stolyarov has developed a terrain-adaptive control system for robotic leg prostheses that helps people with amputees get mobile and walk seamlessly with smooth transition between foot positions.

As he explains:

I developed a way to control a robotic prosthesis such that it allows the user to walk more naturally across different ground terrains. Besides increasing mobility and comfort, this control system also makes walking more symmetrical, decreases the risk of falling, and diminishes impacts on biological joints.
