  • dynamometer

    Dear Biomech-l participants,

    A student of mine needs to come up with a dynamometer for
    estimating knee extension/flexion forces and moments. The device
    she is to use is illustrated in the Word file attached below.
    The problem is: she has to make the dynamometer herself, but
    she needs some information as to how many strain-gauges are
    needed, and where to place them.

    Does any of you have any experience on this?
    (by the way, the student is an electrical engineer).

    A couple of articles by Hull (J. Biomech., 1981) didn't
    help much (there were not enough details on the dynamometer).

    Many thanks in advance!!
