Design and Operation of Human Locomotion Systems

Design and Operation of Locomotion Systems examines recent advances in locomotion systems with multidisciplinary viewpoints, including mechanical design, biomechanics, control and computer science. In particular, the book addresses the specifications and requirements needed to achieve the proper design of locomotion systems. The book provides insights on the gait analysis of humans by considering image capture systems. It also studies human locomotion from a rehabilitation viewpoint and outlines the design and operation of exoskeletons, both for rehabilitation and human performance enhancement tasks. Additionally, the book content ranges from fundamental theory and mathematical formulations, to practical implementations and experimental testing procedures. Written and contributed by leading experts in robotics and locomotion systems Addresses humanoid locomotion from both design and control viewpoints Discusses the design and control of multi-legged locomotion systems

Every year workers' low-back, hand, and arm problems lead to time away from jobs and reduce the nation's economic productivity. The connection of these problems to workplace activities-from carrying boxes to lifting patients to pounding computer keyboards-is the subject of major disagreements among workers, employers, advocacy groups, and researchers. Musculoskeletal Disorders and the Workplace examines the scientific basis for connecting musculoskeletal disorders with the workplace, considering people, job tasks, and work environments. A multidisciplinary panel draws conclusions about the likelihood
