The motor and the brake of the trailing leg in human walking: leg force control through ankle modulation and knee covariance

Abstract

Human walking is a complex task, and we lack a complete understanding of how the neuromuscular system organizes its numerous muscles and joints to achieve consistent and efficient walking mechanics. Focused control of select influential task-level variables may simplify the higher-level control of steady-state walking and reduce demand on the neuromuscular… (More)
