Stanford Engineers Develop Prosthetic Foot That Adapts to Rough Terrain

Robotic Gizmos

Prosthetic limbs have come a long way over the years. Now Stanford researchers have developed a more efficient prosthetic leg that makes challenging terrain more manageable for amputees. This new design has a tripod foot that responds to rough terrain by shifting pressure between 3 different contact points.

Thanks to prosthetic emulators, researchers can try different designs without the overhead of new hardware. More info is available here.
