For my final project in Biomechanics, Alejandro Crawford and I built a really fun game to train and test balance called Cowabunga 2000. We built a balance board out of foam and wood, with a Wiimote strapped to the bottom. … Continue reading
This week I have been researching my biomechanics final by reading about balance and proprioception and how to test and disrupt these mechanism. I would like to build a balance training game which will probably involve one sensor, such as … Continue reading
For this weeks biomechanics assignment, I chose to make a 3D tape model of my thumb and the joint that connects it to my hand. Researching injuries to this area, I found that the most common type is a sprain … Continue reading
After reading the article “Biomechanical Energy Harvesting: Generating Electricity During Walking with Minimal User Effort,” from vol. 319 of Science (J. M. Donelan, Q. Li, V. Naing, J. A. Hoffer, D. J. Weber, and A. D. Kuo), I feel the … Continue reading
I constructed this elbow with a servo motor and an arduino and some wood. It demonstrates the average range of motion (flexion) of the elbow in the sagittal plane.
Dr. Dennis Hong has been called the Da Vinci of Humanoid Robots, and employs a study of biomechanics to make award-winningly humanistic robots. His robot, Charli, won a robot-only soccer competition in Turkey. http://articles.cnn.com/2011-07-17/opinion/hong.car.blind.drivers_1_mark-riccobono-vehicle-driver?_s=PM:OPINION They also have made an autonomous … Continue reading
