    • Determinants of Increased Energy Cost in Prosthetic Gait 

      Peasgood, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      The physiological energy requirements of prosthetic gait in lower-limb amputees have been observed to be significantly greater than those for able-bodied subjects. However, existing models of energy flow in walking have ...
    • A Foot Placement Strategy for Robust Bipedal Gait Control 

      Wight, Derek L. (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-23)
      This thesis introduces a new measure of balance for bipedal robotics called the foot placement estimator (FPE). To develop this measure, stability first is defined for a simple biped. A proof of the stability of a simple ...
    • Mechanics and Control of Human Balance 

      Millard, Matthew (University of Waterloo, 2011-04-18)
      A predictive, forward-dynamic model and computer simulation of human gait has important medical and research applications. Most human simulation work has focused on inverse dynamics studies to quantify bone on bone forces ...
    • On Walking 

      Neault, Sarah Michelle (University of Waterloo, 2010-12-03)
      Imagine the anatomy of architecture as a complex system, where the form is the result of generative processes, the material properties of the components, and their patterns of assembly. Within this paradigm, surface is ...
