To explore magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as the basis of a technique for estimating body segment inertial properties directly on subjects, MRI-based estimates were compared with those generated with more traditional methods. The sensitivity of mass, center of mass location, and moment of inertia estimates to the estimation methods and the distribution of muscle, bone, and fat tissues in the lower leg were also evaluated. A series of transverse plane images spaced 2.5 cm apart on the right… CONTINUE READING
