Dear Biomch-L,

In a recent reply aboutimpact spring parameters there was a reply saying
that the spring constant k varied over time. Does anybody have a reference
for both the spring constant k and damping constant c for the lower mainly
but also upper limbs as it changes over time during locomotion? The values
don't have to be ones which vary over time just values for the lower limbs.
Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely
