Reference(s)

Engin-88-1 [Target]
Joint: Hip
Direction: Complex Motion including Flexion-Extension and Abduction
Characteristic(s): Elasticity

[Measurement Condition]
Subjects: 3 males
Age Span: -
Country: USA
Method: Estimation by quasi-static equilibration (type 1-2)

[Definition]
Refer to the figure on the right side.
Flexion, extension, and abduction are strictly not defined. Refer this paper for details.

[Expression of the data]
A non-linear function of moment to the joint angle (unit:Nm)


[Characteristics]
  • These data are the elasticities against the extension around the hip effected by 3-D rotation.
  • The adaptable range is vague.
  • In Engin's studies, the definitions of the hip angles do not match with the anatomical ones, because he attends to the definition itself of the 3-D rotation angle of shoulder.
