Integration of Leg and Arm "Pendulums" During Walking: Effect of Leg and Waist Loads
Name of Award
3M Small Scale Grant
Marcie Myers, Associate Professor of Biology, and Jessica McCafferty, student researcher, received a $1,850 award from the 3M Small Scale Grant program to discover how key temporal characteristics of gait vary as the limb mass to body mass ratio is systematically altered in walking humans. This knowledge will help in the development of a comprehensive and mechanistic model of walking in humans.
