Siegler-84-1 [Target]
Joint: Ankle
Direction: Flexion-Extension (Dorsiflexion-Plantar Flexion)
Characteristic(s): Elasticity

[Measurement Condition]
Subjects: 5 unimpaired persons & 1 person with hemiplegia
Age Span: 23-39
Country: USA
Method: Estimation by quasi-static equilibration (type 1-1)

[Definition]
Refer to the figure on the right side.
Notice that this defined angle is strictly not that between foot ang shank.

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

[Characteristics]
  • This data is measured in order to examine actions of the passive resistance of ankle during gait.
  • This paper is shown that the direction of articular rotation causes a hysteresis.
  • One of the subjects is with hemiplegia, which data is analyzed separately from others.
