I have two separate questions:
I want to model influence of squatting with shoes of different height. But i am not sure of the best way to model the footwear height. Given that i want to create a model where heel is not on the same level as the toe. This difference what i want to simulate. I currently don't have an idea of how to implement this on AnyBody. could anyone suggest possible approaches?
I have been trying to model shoe mass. I included a new segment on both sides of the foot, used a spherical joint to connect the segment nodes to the foot. I also used AnyKinEq to drive the joint. However, i couldn't observe differences in muscle forces and joint kinematics among shoes. The differences were obvious when i modelled shoe mass as 5.5kg and above. However, this is not an ideal situation with human shoes; most footwears are below 1kg. I was wondering if i modelled this correctly or there is a better way to it?
I'd be happy to read your responses.
