U-M students in an in-person Kinesiology class use the latest wearable technology to conduct mini-experiments on the body's reaction to wearing a mask during exercise, as part of a course studying many types of health tech devices.
Origami principles can unlock the potential of the smallest robots, enhancing speed, agility and control in machines no more than a centimeter in size. U-M researchers have demonstrated that behavioral rules underpinning the Japanese art of folding can expand the capabilities of these machines, creating potential for greater use in fields as diverse as medical equipment and infrastructure sensing.
