Moment of inertia
The following table shows regression equations.
Note:
EThe origin of the coordinate system for each segment is the center of
gravity of that segment. The xaxis is defined as the frontal axis and +x is the direction from
origin towards the front of the body. The yaxis is defined as the saggital axis and
+y is the dorection from the origin towards the left of the body. The zaxis is defined
as the horizontalaxis and +z is direction from the origin towards the head.
EWeight in kg, moment of inertia in gEcm^{2} and segment length and stature in mDNote:
Ex.)Moment of inertia of the trunk around xaxis(gEcm^{2})6.09~10^{6}8.74~10^{3}~stature(cm){3.23~10^{5}~body weight(kg)
