Hi all!
My name is Silvia Diez López. I am writing my master
thesis about
comfort. I am particularly interested in the way to
derived
muscle
stiffness from Cop movement. At the moment I am trying
to
calculate the
muscle stiffness with the method described in one of
the articles
mentioned below, but I do not know how.

I have read some papers, like "The Dynamics of
Quasistatic
Posture Control" and "Assessing Muscle Stiffness from
Quiet Stance
In Parkinson's Disease". I am trying to do the
calculations as it
is
explained there, but I do not understand one of the
steps. First
of all I calculate C(t)= (COPy(t1)-COPy(t2))^2. Then I
try to
obtain the stabilogram diffusion graphic, but I do not
get any graphics like the ones described in your
articles. I only get a spiky curve.
Could someone tell me how can I get the 3-regions
curve?


Thanks in advance,

Silvia
