A model describing the kinematics and dynamics of the lower limb is presented. The lower limb is modeled as a sequence of four rigid links connected by three universal rotary joints representing the hip, knee and ankle joints. Each joint is modeled as a sequence of three single axis rotational joints thus ascribing to the lower limb a total of 12 degrees of(More)
The effect of electrically stimulating the tibialis anterior muscle on the stretch reflex of the soleus muscle in normal subjects and subjects with spasticity is investigated.
