Biomedical Engineer - Greg Sawicki, NCSU



Greg Sawicki, Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering at North Carolina State University shares with us his work on wearable robots. 

Try using the "how fast do you walk" activity with your students. Greg's team collects the same type of data using motion sensors.  He collects the data so that they can build prosthetics that follow the same joint angle trajectories as healthy humans.  The motion capture data helps them to understand how the patterns change with speed and gait (walk vs. run).
