Abstract

A challenge-based instructional module on gait motions and elementary biomechanics for first-year engineering course co-listed in biomedical and mechanical engineering is developed. The learning objectives for gait module are practice problem solving techniques, implement graphing techniques and statistics to solve engineering problems. The students use available gait measurements such as tride intervals to suggest useful descriptions of walking for improvements and development of a simulator for knee prostheses and a smart running shoe with computer-adjusted cushioning. The students are given an application of acquired data analysis skills that is more motivating than a canned exercise by incorporating gait challenge into first-year cpourse.
