Abstract

In the kinematic and kinetic analysis of human movement, an accurate assessment of the inertial properties of the body segments under investigation is often essential. Statistical and geometric models of the segments of the upper limb were examined to determine their ability to predict the moments of inertia of these segments. The cadaver data of Chandler et al. (1975) were used as the criteria with which computed values were compared. The regression equations of Hinrichs (1985) gave the most accurate results; the geometric models appeared to offer the greatest flexibility.
