muscle recruitment

Hi, AnyBody Supports,

I had read the tutorials “Inverse Dynamics of Muscle systems” from lesson 1 to lesson 5. And I practic these lessons in AnyBody. But after it , I still can not really understand about the muscle recruitment. And what type I have to use Linear, Quadratic, Polynomial, Min/Max recruitment in what situation.

Thanks first,

Hi Yeh,

Unfortunately, there is no absolute answer for your question.

The reason why AMS provide several options for muscle recruitment is that there may be different researchers who like to apply different muscle recruitment criteria.

Our default setting is the polynomial objective function with power 3. So if you don’t have any specific preference regarding this matter, then using this default setting would not be too bad.

But the best way for this is to find the best optimization criteria for your purpose using your own experimental validation.

Best regards,
