Articular Efforts of a Disabled Subject during an Automobile Vehicle Accessibility Movement - Constructing a Discomfort Index 2007-01-2462
Vehicle accessibility movement is an important factor for automobile customers, particularly if they are eldery or have locomotor dysfunction. The objective of this work is to propose a discomfort evaluation index based on the articular torques. This paper is interested in the efforts developed within the lower limbs articulations of a disabled subject during the ingress phase. The disability of the subject is characterized by the isokinetic test. The proposed index is confirmed by the subjective evaluation. This was an initial study, in the future we wish to generalize our index.
