Abstract
Estimation of contact forces between lower limb and orthosis during gait is useful to prevent skin issues in subjects wearing this type of assistive devices. While inverse-dynamics based gait analysis of multibody models is difficult to apply due to the limited accuracy of motion capture systems, a forward-dynamics based analysis in which leg and orthosis are considered as independent entities is shown to provide acceptable results. Contact model parameters are calibrated through comparison of m...
