  • Secco E.L. - muscular's economy


    I'm a phd student and I'm working on human finger movement simulation:
    Using a simple finger model (3 rods, 3 hinges) I've move the finger
    following two different principles:
    1) the minimum angular displacement
    2) the minimum cartesian jerk on the fingertip position
    I've noted different results on angular dispositions during movement.

    >From a physiologic point of view (on your experiences) which is the
    hypothesis that grant a more natural movement (and natural movement
    means also long life of muscles?): no. 1 or no. 2? Please on your
    answer consider your experience and not literature tendency

    Thanks for your attention and possible answer,

    "What is the formula for the journey to the ultimate meaning of reality?

    Living the real.
    The only condition for being truly and faithfully religious is
    to live always the real intensely, without negating or forgetting
