Walking the Line

Graphic: Computer simulation of walking. Courtsey: Chad John and Eran Guendelman, Stanford University

These images come from a computer simulation of walking. The simulation is helping researchers understand the activity of different leg muscles. The work might help improve speed, balance and posture in people with movement disorders and enhance the training of athletes. Courtsey: Chad John and Eran Guendelman, Stanford University
