Biomch-L:
Does anyone know of equations of motion for the arm (either horizontal or
vertical plane) which include not only hand, forearm and upper arm segments
but also the contribution of shoulder protraction/retraction or upper
trunk?
More specifically, I am interested in adding a fourth segment
(trunk/shoulder protraction-retraction) to established 3 segment models
(beyond simply accounting for linear acceleration of the shoulder).

Any assistance is much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
