To Biomch-L members

I'm a phd student at Univ. of Pavia - Italy
I'm working to simulate the natural movement of an artificial human

The question: preparing the dynamic model I am not be able to find
indicative values of the viscoelastic coefficient of the cartilagineus
finger joints (MP, PIP and DIP)
Is there any study on this? And on the inertia, weight and other dynamic
parameters of phalanges?

Thank for your continuos attention to my poor question,

Secco Emanuele Lindo

Fung Y. C., (1993), ‘Biomechanics – Mechanical Properties of Living
Tissues’, Springer Verlag
there is not these informations

"What is the formula for the journey to the ultimate meaning of reality?

Living the real.
The only condition for being truly and faithfully religious is
to live always the real intensely, without negating or forgetting
