A leading student team awarded at 2015 Annual LIMBS Summit

A team of the leading program students (Akira Kato, Ryosuke Tsumura, and Naomi Okamura) was awarded the 2nd place Design Competition Award for the presentation they gave at the 2015 Annual LIMBS Summit (held at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) on June 5th).

The presented work, one of the prominent achievements from “integrated research” set by the leading program, is about a design of the ankle-foot coupling called Multi-Axis Rubber Coupling (MARC). As it can be produced with cheap materials that are available in developing countries, their work would initiate a collaborative research project with a UTEP research team.
