The mechanics of multi-joint posture and movement control. (English) Zbl 0599.73101
The dependence of muscle force on muscle length gives rise to a ”spring- like” behavior which has been shown to play a role in the execution of single-joint posture and movement. This paper extends this concept and considers the influence of the apparent mechanical behavior of the neural, muscular and skeletal system on the control and coordination of multiple degree of freedom posture and movement.
