A MEASUREMENT DEVICE AND METHOD FOR DETERMINING NEUROMUSCULAR PROPERTIES OF THE ELBOW EXTENSOR
Keywords: nonlinear parameter identification, modelling, Hill-type muscle model
AbstractThe knowledge of individual muscle properties is important in various fields in sports science, e.g. for planning and evaluating a training program or as input parameters for simulations. So far, most methods to obtain such individual muscle properties are either invasive, expensive or they only lead to movement specific results. A method for non-invasively determining movement independent muscle properties of the knee extensor was recently described in detail by Siebert, Sust, Thaller, Tilp & Wagner (2007). We present an analogous method for determining neuromuscular properties of the elbow extensors.
