The mechanics of walking on two legs

A presentation by Mihály Kenczler.

Place: Technical Study Stores, Budapest (Budapest, Prielle Kornélia utca 10. H-1117)
TIME: 15 November 2017 11:00

Walking on two legs is the essential mode of human “transportation”. In spite of this, it is not a simple process, during our ontogeny, it averagely takes 12 months to acquire the movement series, while its neural control requires serious resources as well. If someone’s walking ability has already been damaged in some way (for instance by breaking a toe), they can estimate the number of components belonging to this ability: there are 23 bones in our ankle, while in our wrist “only” 21. During the presentation, we thoroughly deal with the development, forms, processes, and “devices” of walking on two legs.

The presentation is delivered in Hungarian language.
