This paper describes a novel method for the identification of time-varying ankle joint dynamic stiffness during large passive movements. The method estimates a linear parameter varying parallel-cascade (LPV-PC) model of joint stiffness consisting of two pathways: (a) an LPV impulse response function (IRF) for intrinsic mechanics and (b) an LPV Hammerstein(More)
Joint stiffness has been extensively used to study joint biomechanics. It can be described by a block-oriented, nonlinear, parallel-cascade structure under quasi-stationary conditions defined by the joint operating point. The model parameters are modulated dramatically during functional tasks where the joint operating point is varied with time. This paper(More)
This paper describes a novel method for the identification of Hammerstein systems with time-varying (TV) static nonlinearities and time invariant (TI) linear elements. This paper develops a linear parameter varying (LPV) state-space representation for such systems and presents a subspace identification technique that gives individual estimates of the(More)
This paper describes a novel model structure and identification method for the time-varying, intrinsic stiffness of human ankle joint during imposed walking (IW) movements. The model structure is based on the superposition of a large signal, linear, time-invariant (LTI) model and a small signal linear-parameter varying (LPV) model. The methodology is based(More)
