Gravity-induced oscillations of the lower leg in normal and spastic subjects were examined with a view towards evaluating a clinical test of spasticity called the pendulum test. For passive limb motion (in which no reflex excitation occurred), a second-order linear model did not provide an adequate description of the motion for either spastic or normal legs. System equations including nonlinear mechanical properties simulating asymmetries in the swing and amplitude dependent variations in… CONTINUE READING
