Title: Measurement and mathematical modeling of motion of the human ankle joint complex
Authors: Ying, Ning.
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering::Bioengineering
Issue Date: 2004
Abstract: Accurate knowledge on how the human body uses a combination of passive constraints and active controls to control joint motion during different activities is important to clinical practice. A necessary prerequisite for studying the control is a complete evaluation of the kinematics of joints. This thesis especially focuses on elucidating the kinematics of the normal ankle joint complex. The work may be divided into two general parts: experimental measurements of the kinematics and the development of an anatomy-based mathematical model to examine the effect of the individual passive constraints on determining the kinematics.
