A simple device created by Rice University engineering students may shield young children from much of the pain of having a stent removed after a urinary tract procedure.
The MECH researcher was cited for his fundamental contributions to nonlinear control, robot locomotion and sensor design.
The deviceÂ generates power with every bend of the knee. Engineering students hope it may someday power artificial hearts.
The MECH profesor is one of the world'sÂ leading experts on the dynamics and vibrations of structural and mechanical systems.
