A Biomechanical Model for the Upper Extremity Using Optimization Techniques 740272

A biomechanical model has been developed using dynamic programming as a solution technique. The criterion selected for optimization is power-generated to perform a movement. The model predicts the position of the hand in space while performing simple movements, but the study indicates a need for more detailed considerations of model assumptions. However, the basic assumptions and the principles of theoretical mechanics used in dynamic analyses of man in motion continue to be valid and are not refuted by this study.
