Stiffness and Damping Response Associated With Shock Attenuation in Downhill Running

Abstract

Studies on shock attenuation during running have induced alterations in impact loading by imposing kinematic constraints, e.g., stride length changes. The role of shock attenuation mechanisms has been shown using mass-springdamper (MSD) models, with spring stiffness related to impact shock dissipation. The present study altered the magnitude of impact… (More)
