Joint: Knee
Direction: Flexion-Extension
Characteristic(s): Elasticity

[Measurement Condition]

[Expression of the data]
Graph of a non-linear elastic moment to joint angle
Function not shown

[Characteristics]
  • The elastic characteristics of knee are measured when the posture of ankle and hip changes.
  • This paper is shown that the direction of articular rotation causes a hysteresis.
  • Originally, the purpose of this paper is to examine effects of the knee passive characteristic during gait.
  • The raw data of 2 subjects exist, but not all.
