  • joint moment strenght data

    Hello fellow BIOMCH-Lers:

    I am an Ergonomics Research Assistant at the University of Waterloo and
    would really appreciate your help with an issue.

    I am looking for static joint moment strength data to compare with
    calculated values from a static biomechanical model used to assess
    industrial tasks.

    I need gender- and relative joint angle- specific maximum flexor and
    extensor moment values for the elbow, shoulder, back, hip, knee and
    ankle joints. Either age-specific or data representing the 20-65 yr old
    working population would be appreciated.

    I am surprised by the lack of such information in the literature and am
    wondering if anyone knows of either published or unpublished (thesis)
    papers or databases of information. I have included a list of references
    that I already have, for your reference. Thank you in advance for any
    help that you can provide. I will post all responses.
