Direct estimation of the parameters of a delayed, intermittent activation feedback model of postural sway during quiet standing

Kevin L. McKee, Michael C. Neale, Jonathan David Touboul
2019 PLoS ONE  
In the model, patterns of sway result from both instantaneous, passive, mechanical resistance and delayed, intermittent resistance signaled by the central nervous system.  ...  A Kalman-Filter framework was designed to directly estimate from experimental data the parameters of the model's stochastic delay differential equations with discrete dynamic switching conditions.  ...  Conclusions We designed and implemented an Extended Kalman Filter-based estimation model of intermittent, delayed feedback control in postural sway and demonstrated that for a variety of stable configurations  ...

Alexander Weidmann, Bertram Taetz, Matthias Andres, Felix Laufer, Gabriele Bleser
2020 Sensors  
We compare our estimations with the measurements of a Zebris pressure plate and obtain correlations of 0.39≤r≤0.94 for double support motions and 0.83≤r≤0.87 for a walking motion.  ...  A major challenge in the reconstruction of GRF from kinematic data is the double support phase, referring to the state with multiple ground contacts.  ...  To avoid the restriction induced by a force plate, inverse dynamics can be used to derive kinetic parameters from kinematic data in order to estimate the current stress on joints during human motion and  ...

Evaluation of a model that determines the stability limits of dynamic balance

James L Patton, Yi-Chung Pai, Wynne A Lee
1999 Gait & Posture  
A recent model of balance control has revealed two types of boundaries describing stability limits for center of mass (CM) dynamics: torque boundaries and state boundaries.  ...  Moreover, torque safety margins were highly correlated with COP safety margins, supporting the use of COP safety margins for estimating relative stability in dynamic tasks where balance is maintained.  ...  Portions of this paper were presented at the 1997 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Meeting, Chicago.  ...

Marzieh M. Ardestani, Mehran Moazen, Zhenxian Chen, Jing Zhang, Zhongmin Jin
2015 Neurocomputing  
For a number of experimental gait trials, joint kinematics/kinetics and the resultant contact pressure were computed through multi-body dynamic and explicit finite element analyses to establish a training  ...  Although contact pressure can be estimated using finite element analysis, this approach is generally time-consuming and does not satisfy the real-time requirements of a clinical set-up.  ...  Therefore, a number of gait trials, obtained from literature, were imported to multi-body 48 dynamic (MBD) analysis to estimate knee joint kinematics and kinetics.  ...
