Abstract:The mechanical energy expenditures (MEEs) of two human lower extremity models with different sources of mechanical energy - (1) muscles and (2) joint moments - were compared theoretically. Sources of mechanical energy producing movement of Model 1 were eight muscle, three of which were two-joint muscles. Sources of mechanical energy producing movement of Model 2 were net moments at its joints. These sources of mechanical energy were substituted by 11 one-joint muscles, with the assumption that antagonistic mus…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
