Estimating load in running: proposal of a novel simulation method

  title={Estimating load in running: proposal of a novel simulation method},
  author={Sebastian Deisting Skej{\o}},
Running is a popular activity, but also an activity associated with a high incidence of injuries. In order to properly understand the aetiology of running, methods that can estimate the load of specific bodily structures, such as ligaments and muscles, in large, outdoor studies are needed. A novel simulation method based on a parametric statistical model of running and optimization of a few easily obtainable kinematic and anthropometric measures, is proposed. A candidate optimization objective… Expand

Parameterizing Running Kinematics
The aim of the present study was to develop a parametric running technique model with a minimum set of parameters. Full-body kinematic trajectories of 90 running trials was used to driveExpand
Ability of sagittal kinematic variables to estimate ground reaction forces and joint kinetics in running.
Insight into important running kinetics can be obtained from a subset of sagittal plane kinematics common to a clinical running analysis, according to participants' limb posture at initial contact. Expand
Prediction of ground reaction forces and moments during various activities of daily living.
A computational method to perform inverse dynamics-based simulations without force plates is presented, which both improves the dynamic consistency as well as removes the model's dependency on measured external forces. Expand
Predicting timing of foot strike during running, independent of striking technique, using principal component analysis of joint angles.
A new foot strike detection method is defined for a continuum of striking techniques, by applying PCA to joint angle waveforms and can be applied regardless of whether the runner exhibits a rearfoot, midfoot, or forefoot strike pattern. Expand
Prediction of ground reaction forces and moments during sports-related movements
When performing inverse dynamic analysis (IDA) of musculoskeletal models to study human motion, inaccuracies in experimental input data and a mismatch between the model and subject lead to dynamicExpand
Scaling of musculoskeletal models from static and dynamic trials
Subject-specific scaling of cadaver-based musculoskeletal models is important for accurate musculoskeletal analysis within multiple areas such as ergonomics, orthopaedics and occupational health. WeExpand
A computationally efficient optimisation-based method for parameter identification of kinematically determinate and over-determinate biomechanical systems
A general optimisation-based method for identification of biomechanically relevant parameters in kinematically determinate and over-determinate systems from a given motion and it is shown that, due to a special structure in the linearised Karush–Kuhn–Tucker optimality conditions, the solution can be found very efficiently.

Estimation of Vertical Ground Reaction Forces and Sagittal Knee Kinematics During Running Using Three Inertial Sensors
This study examines the validity of a method to estimate sagittal knee joint angles and vertical ground reaction forces during running using an ambulatory minimal body-worn sensor setup and shows excellent agreement with the reference, for single subject training. Expand
Validity and Reliability of a Commercial Fitness Watch for Measuring Running Dynamics.
The watch is a valid and reliable tool for detecting changes in cadence, VO, and GCT and the motion-capture system detected changes in running dynamics. Expand
