UW BADGER Lab hosted Dynamic Walking 2022

UW BADGER Lab hosted a successful conference of Dynamic Walking 2022 from Monday, June 13 to Thursday, June 16th. BADGER Lab members Becca Roembke, Kieran Nichols, Stephanie Hernandez Hernandez, Heidi Fehr, Yisen Wang, and Tyler Bennett presented their graduate work to a mixed group of roboticists and biomechanists.

The program included long and short research talks given by 90 out of 120 registrants, an afternoon of exploration at Madison, nightly social activities in downtown Madison, and an afternoon trip to Devil’s Lake. It ended with a hardware demo showing off various walking robots, prosthetic limbs, exoskeletons, and other walking-related devices. Videos of the talks and hardware demo can be found at

We thank our wonderful undergraduate volunteers, graduate student organizers, and lab director, Dr. Peter Adamczyk, who made this event possible.
