Edrich-00-1 [Target]
Joint: Ankle
Direction: Flexion-Extention (Dorsiflexion-Plantar Flexion)
Characteristic(s): Elasticity

[Measurement condition]
Subjects: 3 males & 3 females, each with paraplegia
Age Span: 23-40
Country: Germany
Method: Estimation by quasi-static equilibration type 1-1)

[Definition]
Refer to the figure on the right side.
The definition of the knee angle is written by Edrich-00-02.

[Expression of the data]
An exponential function of moment to the joint angle (unit:Nm)


[Characteristics]
  • These data are for the paraplegics, and are compared with those of unimpaired persons.
  • These contain even the difference of the elasticities by the change of the postures of the knee.
  • The measured characteristics are modeled, including the effects of the biarticular muscles.
  • Raw data of several postures exist.
