that behave like normal limbs. After all, how hard would it be to walk
with one normal foot and one weird one? The biomechatronics lab at MIT
has developed a foot that attempts to mimic the normal behavior of a
standard foot while walking over various terrain.
The foot has a rotating ankle joint attached to an artificial shin
and a board-like surface for the part that touches the ground. We're
always excited when we hear about advances in prosthetics, because one
of our greatest fears is losing a limb in a horrific blogging accident.
Don't laugh. It could happen.
