Riener-99-1 [Target]
Joint: Ankle
Direction: Flexion-Extension (Dorsiflexion-Plantar Flexion)
Characteristic(s): Elasticity

[Measurement Condition]
Subjects: 10 males
Age Span: 23-29
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 Riener-99-02.

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


[Characteristics]
  • 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.
  • The raw data about only 1 subject exists.
