Excessive ankle stress

I found a problem when using LowerExtremity.main.any in the Plug-in-gait-simple folder. That is, the ankle joint force obtained by using the original official documents and data is 5.6 times the body weight. This value seems to be very large compared with the normal ankle joint force in the paper, which is generally more than four times the body weight. May I ask why the ankle joint data obtained according to the official document is as high as 5.6?

Best Regards,

Hi Xu,

It's hard to say without understanding the two sources in detail. The type of activity can change the force in the ankle, for example speed of gait can change the force. It's not unusual to find papers that say ankle joint force can be more than 5 times the body weight.

Best regards,
