Simulation of the complex countermovement jumping by means of a simple four-degrees-of-freedom model


By means of a four-degrees-of-freedom model the vertical movements of an athlete and the time course of the ground reaction force were simulated during a countermovement jump on a concrete and a wooden surface. The model masses were connected to each other and to the surface by springs and dampers. At first the stiffness of the springs decreased in order to… (More)
