Abstract: The aim of this work is to formulate a spasticity symptoms-oriented model, in terms of its capability to consistently emulate unidirectional and velocity-dependent spasticity symptoms, based on a Modified Tardieu Scale (MTS). Spasticity stiffness can be simulated using two dynamic equations expressing 1) muscle tone catch during passive stretching at different velocities and 2) resistance through Range Of Motion (ROM). Muscle tone is proportionate to velocity; where muscle resistance is constant until reachin…
