Linear center-of-mass dynamics emerge from non-linear leg-spring properties in human hopping.

Abstract

Given the almost linear relationship between ground-reaction force and leg length, bouncy gaits are commonly described using spring-mass models with constant leg-spring parameters. In biological systems, however, spring-like properties of limbs may change over time. Therefore, it was investigated how much variation of leg-spring parameters is present during… (More)
