Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate a multi body system (BRG.LifeMod) in regard to the application for several simple movements: step-up, kicking movements, step movements. Results of other authors maintain the simulation results. The presented models help to estimate the stress in joints of the lower extremities
