Abstract

The aim of this paper is to illustrate developments in inverse dynamics using selected examples. It will give a description of the method with emphasis on the critical parts. Results are discussed for several examples and the methodological difficulties are specified. It is shown how hidden parameters can be uncovered with the help of inverse dynamics. The quantification of sports performance is demonstrated, and the applicability of inverse dynamics in the training process is illustrated.
