Areas of Research

Human Biomechanics

Uneven terrain walking and walking simulations with simple dynamic models.


Compliant stance control knee ankle foot orthosis.


Vibrations on human muscle and tendons. 


Dr. Osman Darici researches human biomechanics. He previously worked on walking speed and dynamics control on uneven terrain. He is currently working on extending his research to complex uneven terrains and computational walking models that walk based on energy optimization. He also studies vibrations on human muscles and tendons and its outcomes on the nervous system.
