...Kozo Naito ABSTRACT The importance of a proximal-to-distal (P–D) sequential motion in baseball pitching is generally accepted; however, the mechanisms behind this sequential motion and motor control theories that explain which factor transfers mechanical energy between the trunk and arm segments...

... increases with the PE of the animal. In this study we investigate the mechanical energy ( ME ) fluctuations and the mechanical cost of transport (MCT) in six horses galloping up a range of gradients. We captured trunk movement with a six degrees-of-freedom inertial sensor mounted over the dorsal spinous...

...Thilo Pfau; Thomas H. Witte; Alan M. Wilson SUMMARY During locomotion cyclical interchange between different forms of mechanical energy enhances economy; however, 100% efficiency cannot be achieved and ultimately some mechanical work must be performed de novo. There is a metabolic cost associated...

... moved up and down twice per stride, like a single walking biped, and up to 70% of the mechanical energy required to lift and accelerate the center of mass was recovered via the inverted pendulum mechanism. To understand how the limbs produce these center of mass movements, we created a simple model...
