  • Secco E.L. - viscoelastic coefficient, hum. finger

    To Biomch-L members

    I'm a phd student at Univ. of Pavia - Italy
    I'm working to simulate the natural movement of an artificial human

    The question: preparing the dynamic model I am not be able to find
    indicative values of the viscoelastic coefficient of the cartilagineus
    finger joints (MP, PIP and DIP)
    Is there any study on this? And on the inertia, weight and other dynamic
    parameters of phalanges?

    Thank for your continuos attention to my poor question,

    "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
