Inverse Dynamics and Reaction Vector Technique
I'm currently studying difference methods of measuring forces within gait movements and so far have found 3 seperate techniques : Inverse Dynamics, Reaction Vector Technique and Force Transducer, that will enable accurate estimations of internal moments and forces throughout the body. I am wishing to construct a literature review around Inverse Dynamics and Reaction Vector technique, yet research surrounding strengths and weaknesses of each technique is proving difficult to obtain. I am hoping that someone could help me in my search for this literature, my current sources of literature include:
Kuo, A.D. (1998). A least squares estimation approach to improving the precision of Inverse Dynamics Computations. Journal of Biomechanical Engineering. 120, 149-159.
Le Fichoux-Chemli, B., Swider, P. and Mouzin, O. (1999). Identification of non-linear transient behaviour of flexible structures: Application to a golfer's swing. Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing. 13. 509-522.
Any help greatly appreciated. Especially in the form of review articles. Hopefully on the completion of the review, it will enable myself to construct a computer program, with the purpose of examining gait in respect to digital analysis and force interactions.
