Figure 1

Experimental set-up. The left picture shows a subject during the experiments. Reflective markers were mounted on anatomical location of the subject to capture the motion with 10 infrared cameras. Muscle activity of 14 muscles is measured with surface electromyography. Ground reaction forces between the feet and the ground are measured with three force plates. These measurements are used with a generic musculoskeletal model in opensim to calculate the joint kinematics and kinetics during sit-to-stand, stand-to-sit, gait, stair ascent and stair descent.
