Time-Varying Ankle Mechanical Impedance During Human Locomotion

  title={Time-Varying Ankle Mechanical Impedance During Human Locomotion},
  author={Hyunglae Lee and N. Hogan},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering},
In human locomotion, we continuously modulate joint mechanical impedance of the lower limb (hip, knee, and ankle) either voluntarily or reflexively to accommodate environmental changes and maintain stable interaction. Ankle mechanical impedance plays a pivotal role at the interface between the neuro-mechanical system and the physical world. This paper reports, for the first time, a characterization of human ankle mechanical impedance in two degrees-of-freedom simultaneously as it varies with… CONTINUE READING
