Spinal Biomechanics
Estimation of Lumbar Spine Load Sharing using a Detailed Finite Element Model driven by X-Ray Kinematics in Flexion Task

Iraj Dehghan Hamani; Navid Arjmand

Volume 11, Issue 4 , February 2018, , Pages 327-335

  Spinal diseases are prevalent and costly. Excessive mechanical loads on the spine play a crucial role in the etiology of back disorders. To estimate spinal loads one needs to calculate unknown muscle forces through either an optimization or EMG-driven approach. Both approaches involve several assumptions ...  Read More

Spinal Biomechanics
Estimation of Low Back Muscles and Joints Forces in Various Physical Tasks using a Combined Optimization-EMG based Spinal Model

Yousef Mohammadi; Rasoul Abedi; Navid Arjmand; Gholamreza Ataei; Nasser Fatouraee

Volume 11, Issue 4 , February 2018, , Pages 351-363

  The growth of low back pain and disoreders are increasing in different societies. Furthermore,the direct in vivo measurement of spinal and muscle forces is so difficult. Hence, the use of musculoskeletal biomechanical models has been emerged applicably as a tool for calculating and estimating spinal ...  Read More

Gait Analysis
Nonlinear analysis of dynamic lumbar stability during repetitive trunk flexion extension at symmetric and asymmetric directions

Samane Moeini Sedeh; Navid Arjmand; Mohammad Ali Sanjari; Hamid Reza Mokhtarinia; Morteza Asgari; Mohammad Parnianpour

Volume 7, Issue 4 , June 2013, , Pages 333-340

  Stability is important to prevent falling during occupational and daily living activities. Control parameters such as direction of motion and external load can affect stability pattern. The purpose of this paper was to evaluate the effect of the mentioned control parameters on stability. Time series ...  Read More
