Project Video


Video due and should be uploaded to your page by 6/5.  See previous course pages for example videos.

Videos should be less than 7 minutes.


     Recently, powered exoskeletons have been used successfully to reduce the metabolic cost of walking in both healthy (insert references) and clinical populations (insert references). The devices work by supplying torques to augment and offload biological joint moments, thereby reducing the necessary muscle forces that have to contribute to the moments. Several major challenges remain for the field, and we h recently In a few paragraphs or less, describe the goal of your project and any relevant background information.

To be completed by 5/8.

Research Question(s)

  1. Well-defined research questions to be addressed with your project
  2. Questions should be written such that a clear answer will be given at the end
  3. To be completed by 5/8


This can include:

  • Model(s) used
  • Simulation strategy
  • Computational tools
  • Experimental procedures/data
  • Flow chart of methods

This will vary based on your project.

It should include a step-by-step guide such that anyone using your page can understand and complete.  The purpose of the confluence page is to share your work with others so that we can build off of each other's research, so making your methods clear is very important.

You can also insert code (with approval from project mentors) and other helpful links.

To be completed by 6/5 (but you should have a plan by 5/8).


This can include:

  • Videos of simulations
  • Graphs of results
  • Tables of results
  • Other figures
  • Relevant equations

Make sure to point out how this addresses your research questions.


To be completed by 6/5.

Future Work

  • What were some challenges you faced?
  • Did you address all the research questions you aimed to?
  • What future studies could be done to address these challenges?
  • Based on your results, what are the next questions to be studied?
  • How does this advance the field of biomechanics on a larger scale?

To be completed by 6/5.
