Abstract

There have been recent advances made at WPI within the past five years regarding the development of a mechanism that limits the amount of torque transmitted to the lower tibia from snowblades. Our project group analyzed previous works, evaluated manufacturing regulations, and completed a successful production run for a cam and follower housing unit that can be used interchangeably with various cam and follower designs to eliminate injurious torques with snowblade bindings.
