The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate a biomechanical model of lumbar back extension over a wide range of positions for the lumbar spine, incorporating the latest information on muscle geometry and intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). Analysis of the Visible Human data was utilised in order to obtain anatomical information unavailable from the literature and magnetic resonance imaging was used to generate subject-specific anatomical descriptions. The model was evaluated by… CONTINUE READING
