The effects of grabrail position and orientation on body motion and handle force.

4th Australasian Biomechanics Conference

Author: O'Meara, D. M., Smith, R. M.
Year: 2002
Type: Conference Paper

Abstract:

In this paper the effect of grabrail assistance on centre of mass (COM) motion and force applied to the grabrail will be investigated to determine the strategy that healthy older aged adults adopt when performing the sit-stand-sit cycle. This data can aid in determination of appropriate grabrail design features.
