counts. The distance that a person walks during the course of a day should be positively and strongly correlated with the number of steps a person takes. In addition, biomechanical models predict that walking speed and subject height should also be important, because faster walking and taller subjects

-tendon rupture during a clean-and-jerk lift. By applying a five-segment biomechanical model to the lifting movement and with specific information regarding knee-joint moment arms, they calculated the in vivo force sustained by the patellar tendon at the time of rupture. The estimate, 14.5 kN (17.5 times body

(GMCA) was developed using the Microsoft Kinect to assess the movement competence of children. The software development process involved 1) building a simple biomechanical model of the performer (15 joint segments); 2) designing different dynamic movement tasks (or games) that would putatively assess

achieve that location may still prove to be beneficial in rehabilitating populations suffering from poor balance control, such as stroke patients ( Dean and Kautz, 2015 ). The Lateral Ankle Strategy We can make the biomechanical model slightly more complex by adding a foot and an ankle joint to the leg
