Using OpenSim to Model, Simulate, and Improve Gait Symmetry in Stroke Survivors.

Semester: Spring 2024

Presentation description

When someone has a stroke, there is a chance that they could lose symmetry in their gait because of hemiparesis. This asymmetry can cause a loss of balance which increases the risk of falling. Research shows that connecting a spring between the ankles of runners efficiently transfers energies between the legs and reduces metabolic cost. Our hypothesis is that applying this principle to people with asymmetrical gait could potentially transfer energy from the legs and improve gait symmetry.
