Resum
The impulsive dynamics associated with the impact of the crutch with the ground is an important topic of research, since this is known to be the main cause of energy loss during crutch gait. In this article, a foursegmental 2D model based on anthropometric body segment parameters is used to analyze various dynamics aspects of such impact. For this purpose, a novel formulation based on the decomposition of the tangent space of the biomechanical system to two subspaces associated with the constrai...
