View Full Version : ankle torque

10-05-2000, 11:24 PM
Hello everyone;

I would like to get information about the torque that appears in
the ankle joint during an inversion / eversion rotation of about 30
degrees (ankle sprain). I just need an approximate value for a
general adult population.

I have found some information about ankle stiffness for the
antero-posterior movement of the ankle. The value of the stiffness is
between 400 and 800 (Nm/rad) for adult men, but I think I can not
extrapolate this data for inversion / eversion rotation of the ankle.

Thanks in advance
