... and impulses of the forelimb and hindlimb were recorded and analyzed in three dimensions. The hindlimbs of B. variegatus apply large braking forces greater in magnitude than peak forces generated by the forelimbs in propulsion, a pattern consistent with that observed in two-toed sloths. However, B. variegatus...

... analysis to calculate lower-limb joint mechanical variables. As forward acceleration magnitude decreased, the vertical GRF impulse remained nearly unchanged whereas the net horizontal GRF impulse became smaller as a result of less propulsion and more braking. Mechanical function was adjusted at all three...

... predictions made using a number of different cost functions that include terms for average muscle work, force, force rate and impulse (time integral of muscle force). Muscle impulse alone predicts metabolic cost per hop as well as more complex functions that include terms for muscle work, force and force rate...

... of the desert ant Cataglyphis fortis together with their ground reaction forces and weight-specific leg impulses for level locomotion and on moderate (±30 deg) and steep (±60 deg) slopes in order to understand mechanical functions of individual legs during inclined locomotion. There were three main findings...

... in the ankle joint during the alleviation phase. A larger impulse for the trailing leg than for the remaining body is observed during the launching phase. Here, the buckling knee joint inhibits transfer of power from the ankle to the remaining body. It appears that swing initiation profits from an impulsive...
