Experimental determination of human arm force/elbow joint angle relation
Krejsa J., Zezula M., Věchet S.
pages 79 - +6p., full text

The achievable force at the end of human forearm depends on the forearm position. The actual value of this force is one of the most important variables affecting the design of the motorized splint, but reliable data are hard to find. Sophisticated measuring device was constructed to determine this force. The force is measured during the movement of the forearm, as such method yields better results than static measurement. The trajectory of movement is enforced by the measuring device, so the influence of the subject on the trajectory is eliminated.
