Amputees aged 3 to 70 came to campus May 3 for a running and mobility clinic cosponsored by Mines and Hanger Clinic, an orthotic and prosthetic services and products provider. Nearly 40 participants had the opportunity to receive individualized biomechanical assessments and learn fundamentals of running with prosthetics, including stretching and strengthening. There was even a section just for kids. Anne Silverman, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, worked with Hanger Clinic to organize the event with other faculty and students from Mines. “The goals of the running clinic align well with the biomechanics program at Mines in that it encourages a healthy lifestyle, improved mobility and increased activity in people with musculoskeletal disabilities,” Silverman says. She expects that Mines will continue to help grow and host the event with Hanger Clinic in future years.
