This paper describes a technique for the calculation of a lumped-mass representation of a human based on acceleration of body locations, typically obtained from a three-dimensional motion tracking system, and external forces and torques, typically measured from a force plate. The inverse problem of solving for lumped masses is presented, which results in a… (More)
