... (assumptions) to make the problem tractable. Implicit in the single limb standing model is that midstance is sufficiently representative of the entire stance phase of the gait cycle to describe the structural demands impose by lower limb biomechanics. During standing, however, the ground reaction force (GRF...

... in humans, and is immediately related to compressive stress. Hence, measured intradiscal pressure data are very useful for validating such biomechanical animal models that have the spine incorporated, and can, thus, compute compressive stress values. Here, we use human intradiscal pressure data to verify...

Summary: For spiders, the bouncing gait and the hydraulic system contribute to the lower transport cost at low speed, while the hydraulic system greatly increases the transport cost at high speed.

...Thibault Lussiana; Cyrille Gindre ABSTRACT There is considerable inter-individual variability in self-selected intensity or running speed. Metabolic cost per distance has been recognized as a determinant of this personal choice. As biomechanical parameters have been connected to metabolic cost...

There may therefore be a trade-off between variation and performance during escape responses. We have used bluegill...
