New Article: Motor modules during adaptation to walking in a powered ankle exoskeleton

Congratulations, Dr. Jacobs on the new article.

Motor modules during adaptation to walking in a powered ankle exoskeleton, Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation 2018 15:2 https://doi.org/10.1186/s12984-017-0343-x

Modules of muscle recruitment can be extracted from electromyography (EMG) during motions, such as walking, running, and swimming, to identify key features of muscle coordination. These features may provide insight into gait adaptation as a result of powered assistance. The aim of this study was to investigate the changes (module size, module timing and weighting patterns) of surface EMG data during assisted and unassisted walking in an powered, myoelectric, ankle-foot orthosis (ankle exoskeleton).
