Description

This dataset corresponds to the article published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface titled: "The foot is more than a spring: human foot muscles perform work to adapt to the energetic requirements of locomotion" Compare how step on level ground versus stepping up and down 26 cm platforms. Dataset consists of EMG activation of the Flexor Digitorum Brevis (FDB) and Abductor Hallucis (AH) muscles in addition to dynamic data of the foot and leg joints such as mechanical work and moments, as estimated by performing inverse dynamics with force plate and motion capture data.
