Areas of Research

Human Biomechanics

Uneven terrain walking and walking simulations with simple dynamic models.


Compliant stance control knee ankle foot orthosis.


Effects of vibration and vestibular stimulation on human muscle and tendons, balance and gait. 



Dr. Osman Darici researches  about human biomechanics. He previously worked on human walking 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 works about stimulating human nervous system with vibration and vestibular stimulation to understand how humans control their balance and walking.
