Abstract

The present paper focuses on developing an integrated model to describe the static and dynamic characteristics of the human neuro-musculo-skeletal system, namely, the bi-dimensional two-joint upper limb. This model includes the shoulder and elbow joint, three pairs of antagonist muscles, descending motor commands, length and velocity feedback from muscle spindles, spinal stretch reflex, reciprocal inhibition, recurrent inhibition of Renshaw cells and feedback of Golgi tendon organs. The model simulation with computed muscle activations (in Matlab environment) are compared with experimental data from EMG measurements.
