Yoon-82 [Target]
Joint: Hip
Direction: Flexion-Extension
Characteristic(s): Elasticity

[Measurement Condition]
Subjects: 4 males
Age Span: 23-36
Country: USA
Method: Estimation by quasi-static equilibration (type 1-3)

[Definition]
Refer to the figure on the right side.

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

From flexion to extension:


[Characteristics]
  • The elasticities of hip are measured when the knee angle changes in three stages.
  • This paper is shown that the direction of articular rotation causes a hysteresis, so the measured characteristics are devided into above two functions.
  • The raw data about only 1 person exists.
