"This is the dance the Canby high school dance team is doing this year...It is a story of tribal seasons and the floor is a paper scroll that has been unrolled...The girls are dressed liked birch trees with a yellow leaf on back...The boys on stilts represent winter..."

A pair of stilts from PegStilts.com are being used for a bio mechanics study at Omaha University in Nebraska!
It's a study of the energy costs and motor skill learning of walking on stilts
Info from the researcher:
"I am just finishing up the project for which you donated the stilts and I had a NASA fellowship to pay for my time. I presented the work at Nebraska Academy of Science Aeronautics & Space Science Section and the summary was published in the Proceedings of Nebraska Academy of Science.
You can see the motion capture cameras in the background. There are little spherical markers attached to the stilts to track their motions in 3 dimensions.
I am talking to the lab director about actually starting a new study using the stilts where the subjects just walk on the ground (walking on the treadmill on the stilts was pretty difficult for people with only an hour of stilt practice). If the lab director and I work out the details of another study, we would start bringing in subjects to collect more data this fall." ~N. Hunt
