In this study, we analyzed the electrical activity patterns of the antagonistic bi-articular and mono-articular muscles of both legs during normal gait cycles, in terms of electromyographic (EMG) kinesiology and control engineering. For control engineering analyses, we utilized a mechanical two-joint link model equipped with antagonistic pairs of(More)
