Limb Mass to Body Mass Ratio: Influences on the Temporal Characteristics of Walking

Name of Award

3M Small Scale Grant

Date Awarded




Project Description

Marcie Myers, Associate Professor of Biology, and Heather Marie Hirsch and Dilangani Boralessa, student researchers, received a $1,392 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 will help determine how much energy is saved within the body and within the lower limbs as a result of their pendular-like motion.
