Modeling the Voluntary Reflex of the Human Ankle

Mentor: Hyunglae Lee
MORE: Spring 2018

This research provides a system model for the torque generation of a healthy human ankle undergoing voluntary reflex. This project also provides a physical platform to further study the ankle models in a diseased population. The results of this study will provide a baseline parametric model upon, which differences in voluntary reflex models from diseased populations can be quantified. Future work will involve quantifying the differences in these population’s models.
