To objectively diagnose the severity of spasticity, it is important to measure the muscle activity accurately. Filtered EMG has an offset above zero which is part noise and part background activity. The goal of this study is to separate these two parts, using a non-linear neuromuscular ankle model. The model uses positional and EMG data as...

Musculoskeletal models often use Hill-type models to study and simulate muscle behaviour. Due to fast simulation time and ability to simulate large and slow movements Hill-type models have remained largely unchanged throughout recent years. Large and slow movements spend a large part in steady state behaviour and thus experience limited...

Neurologically impaired patients can regain motor function by engaging in rehabilita- tion. Currently there is no conclusive evidence that robotic rehabilitation has better clinical results than conventional rehabilitation but robotic rehabil- itation has the potential to increase efficiency and patient motivation, justifying improvement of reha...

A distal radius fracture (DRF) is one of the most common fractures, especially in older women. Previous research shows that a DRF disturbs sensorimotor functions even eight weeks after finished treatment, which could influence neuromuscular control. The neuromuscular system exists of a sensory, motor and integration part, which all interact with...

Joint impedance describes the dynamic resistance of a joint in response to position perturbations. Joint impedance is known to vary nonlinearly during movement caused by varying joint angle and muscle activation. The nonlinear behaviour can be described using linear time-varying models under certain assumption. Recently a number of time-varying...

Ultrasound gives the opportunity to look at muscles and observe their change in length. This tool has increased the knowledge about muscle-tendon dynamics and sometimes revealed surprising muscle stretch behaviour. System identification experiments use robots to disturb the ankle and measure its torque and angle. Muscle movement is derived from...

There is a distinction between environmental and social interactions as humans interpret the world. Environmental interactions are based on weighted sensory estimates formed on integrated redundant information. Trust is a heuristic used in social interactions. As social interactions and technology interrelate, social factors become influences on...

Humans can compensate rapidly to unforeseen errors and circumstances while performing motor tasks. These tasks are exposed to sensory and motor noise and delays originated from the biological system characteristics, as well as to varying surrounding environments while performing movements. Therefore, uncertainty of the estimate of limb position...

<i>Introduction.</i> Increased joint resistance to imposed movement (“muscle hypertonia”) is a common finding in patients with an upper motor neuron syndrome, following stroke. Contributors to muscle hypertonia are of neural (increased reflex activity) and non-neural (altered visco-elastic properties) nature. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy ...
