Engin-87-1 [Target]
Joint: Elbow
Direction: Extension
Characteristic(s): Elasticity

[Measurement Condition]
Subjects: 10 males
Age Span: 18-32
Country: USA
Method: Estimation by quasi-static equilibration (type 1-2)

[Definition]
Refer to the figure on the right side.
The elbow joint angle is defined as that of the forearm from the posture of the upper arm. Refer this paper for details.

[Expression of the data]
A cubic formula of moment to the elbow extension angle (unit:Nm)


[Characteristics]
  • The coefficients of the function are measured about each subjects. These coefficients of the above one are the average values.
  • The raw data of the joint moment to the joint angle about only 1 person exists.
  • To read a series of papers of Engin thoroughly is needed.
