Dear Biomch-L readers:

I have recently finished my D.Sc. in the Department of Biomedical Engineering
at the Technion-IIT, Haifa, Israel, on "Control Strategies in Human Gait".
I also received my M.Sc. degree (1990) in the Department of Biomedical
Engineering at the Technion-IIT, with my thesis on "Investigation of Gait
Control Assisted by a Multi-link Model of the Locomotor System".
(B.Sc. degree (1987),in the Mechanical Engineering, Dept. of Mechanical
Engineering, Technion-IIT)

My work established the equations of motion of a multi-link system of
bifurcated chains. An algorithm was developed to deal with continuous
constraints (e.g., two legs on the ground) and with impulsive constraints
(e.g., the formulation of contact between foot and ground). In my M.Sc. a
computer simulation of the locomotor system was developed, represented by an
11-link model. Gait performance was tested, using two control schemes
(the "actuator approach" and the "impedance approach"), in landing on a bump
in the floor and into a depression in the floor. In my Ph.D. a computer
simulation of the locomotor system was developed represented by a 9-link model,
and a controller based on Sensory-Motor principles. The control of the
different phases of walking was achieved by the combination of an "open loop"
controller (based on preprogrammed torque and impedance patterns) and a
"closed loop" controller (correction of global parameters related to gait
process stability, utilizing feed-forward to account for delays in the system).

I am interested in a post-doctoral research or any other research position in
my fields, i will be pleased if any one can help me or advise me about
possible addresses which i can contact for establishing connections.


Sincerely yours
Danny Seltzer
