Projects

Odyssey

  • An ankle replacement system that stores and releases energy in a motor-spring complex during gait. The compliant actuator allows Odyssey to provide a natural, fully-powered step.
  • The microprocessor-controlled robotic ankle interprets user’s behavior 1,000 times each second to ensure it follows their every move.

SPaRK

  • Provides the dismounted soldier a power generation capability that can augment and extend traditional power sources, such as batteries.
  • Has shown negligible metabolic cost associated with harvesting ankle energy at slow walking speeds.

Jackspring™ Ankle

  • The JackSpring-based ankle offers a powerful, robust, energy efficient solution to the task of human gait assistance.
  • This device is self-tunable, compensating for changes in weight or carried load without a visit to a prosthetist.

Running Leg

  • A computer-controlled, powered, running prosthesis for transtibial Military amputees. The final version is intended to be a robust walk-run, all terrain, all-weather, quiet device.
  • Allows simple removal of active components for occasions when a passive device provides sufficient performance.
