Flexion, Extension, Muscle study of Elbow, MSMS


This paper describes Biomechanical model of arm which is totally computational approach for modeling the complex mechanical properties of muscles of Hand. This can be embodied as a simulation model for use with Matlab and Simulink. The model allows the creation of realistic Muscle structure and movement of arm. Here we have considered elbow movement and the muscle which are activated during the elbow movement. Flexion and extension of elbow and associated muscles are studied. This paper also gives relation between force and given stimulation to particular muscle. The model presented here can be employed to design FES controller for subject who suffered from quadriplegia due to spinal cord injury (SCI) or multiple sclerosis (MS)
