Harvesting Kinetic Energy Through Linear Alternation

Harvesting Kinetic Energy Through Linear Alternation by Seth Woodbury, Lochlyn Reed, and Max Eyster Abstract The focus of this research was to harness human kinetics as an alternative energy source. Two body parts (shoulder and calf) of 20 randomly selected subjects were tested with a modified accelerometer that measured movement in all three dimensions which ultimately concluded the calf generates the most movement. A linear alternator was created to fit on the calf and utilize […]

Implementation and Feasibility of Artificial Muscles in Prosthesis

Implementation and Feasibility of Artificial Muscles in Prosthesis by┬áBrady Russell Abstract Artificial Muscles (electroactive polymers, dielectric elastomers, etc.) have been looked at for potential use in prosthesis and orthotics. The purpose of this research is to look at the feasibility of using these current technologies, especially in their respective ability for load bearing capacity and power consumption. My focus was on three types of artificial muscles: Peano-HASEL actuators, McKibben actuators, and dielectric elastomers. All of […]
