  • A Critical Question About Arm Swing

    Dear Researchers and Biomechanists

    I have a critical question related to arm swing in humans and I am really
    interested in receiving you answers and idea.
    I am a mechanical engineering PhD student, and for a part of my research I
    want to investigate the feasibility of manufacturing an arm swing device.
    The idea is that there is a neural correlation between upper and lower
    limbs, so for people who suffer from cord injury and undergo rehabilitation
    procedure, instead of just focusing on their legs' movement , a
    device should also impose a correct arm swing to them to help them to regain
    their walking ability. Some specialists may argue that such an arm swing
    device is unnecessary and may add more weight to the patients and its
    benefits are not coniderable.
    Since I am not an expert in physiotherapy, I'd really like to hear your
    comments on this idea.
    I am looking forward to hearing from you,
    Thank you for your kindly response,

    Best regards,
