Abstract:
In musculoskeletal models knowledge of changing muscle lengths and moment arms during motion is crucial to calculate accurately joint load, muscle's force and muscle's energy consumption. Especially in complex 3D joint motions, moment arms are not available in the literature. In this study a framework is presented for calculating the athlete's individual muscle lengths during sports by means of motion analysis. Bones were simulated by use of anatomical data and presented as triangulated surface...    »
