Dear Biomech's,
I am a graduate student working on a control model of the human
precision grip. I have reached a point where I have to separate the
control system from the complex system of the upper limb. Where can I
find further information of a simple model of the upper limb? The aim of
this is to find an approximation of a transfer function from motoneuron
to fingertip forces. The model should be as simple as possible. The
motoneuron output can also be replaced with a step function representing
the goal force at the finger tip.
I have gone through the ISB archives but didn't find exactly what I
was looking for.

Thank you in advance,

PS: I will send a summary of your answers. DS
