Dear all,

I have received lots of informative replies about the reference regarding the inverse dynamics calculation. Here comes the summary of the respnoses with my original post.

Thanks to all who replied.

Original post:

Dear Biomech-List members,

I am looking for a reference to describe the argument that 'a small error in human body kinematics could lead to huge error in joint moment calculation when using conventional Inverse-dynamics approach'. I have viewed many papers focusing on the Inverse-dynamics calculation during human movement. There is no one exactly appropriatefor this topic.

I would greatly appreciate if you could give us any help or advice in regards of the reference.

Many thanks

Feng Yang
