Humans hopping and running on elastic and damped surfaces maintain similar center-of-mass dynamics by adjusting stance leg mechanics. We tested the hypothesis that the leg transitions from acting like an energy-conserving spring on elastic surfaces to a power-producing actuator on damped surfaces during hopping due to changes in ankle mechanics. To test this hypothesis, we collected surface electromyography, video kinematics, and ground reaction force while eight male subjects (body mass: 76.2… CONTINUE READING
