Upper extremity biomechanical model of crutch-assisted gait in children

Abstract

A 3D biomechanical model with a novel instrumented Lofstrand crutch system is presented. The novel Lofstrand crutch system consists of two six-axis load cells incorporated in the crutch to study the reaction forces occurring at the crutch handle and the cuff. The goal of this study is to quantify the effect of the cuff forces with the help of this improved… (More)
