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…
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.
