How might we prevent injuries in the first place for healthy aging?


SCALED aims to investigate the potential of a controlled motion-limiting structure to prevent particularly hyperextension joint injuries. Prior research describes the downsides of nature-inspired scale structures, as mobility is commonly a trade-off with protection. SCALED investigates the possibility to regulate this restriction in motion and thereby ultimately prevents hyperextension joint injuries.
