Harvard researchers aim to improve robotic therapy for those learning to walk again.
A new research study of high-tech medical robots arrived at a curious conclusion this week: Toddlers are geniuses.
Well, they didn’t quite phrase it that way, but that’s the essential takeaway from a series of studies on how machines can help injured people learn to walk again. It turns out that, from a biomechanical point of view, walking is an especially tricky business — and those toddlers are working a lot harder than we thought.
