Evaluation of loads acting on the spine requires the knowledge of the muscular forces acting on it, but muscles redundancy necessitates developing a muscle forces attribution strategy. Optimisation, EMG, or hybrid models allow evaluating muscle force patterns, yielding a unique muscular arrangement or/and requiring EMG data collection. This paper presents a regulation model of the trunk muscles based on a proprioception hypothesis, which searches to avoid the spinal joint overloading. The model… CONTINUE READING
