Abstract:The estimation of segment inertial parameters (SIPs) is an important source of error in inverse dynamic analysis. In most individual cases SIPs are derived from extrapolation of known SIPs of a certain population through regression equations (proportional models). Another well-known method is the use of mathematical approximation of the shape of human body segments combined with estimations of segment densities (geometric models). In the current study five males and five females performed four different liftin… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research 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 students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
