Simulation models of impacts have traditionally been developed with rigid segments. The inertia parameters required to represent the rigid segments have subsequently been derived using a customised rigid body geometric model. This paper presented the first component geometric modelling approach for deriving subject-specific soft (wobbling) and rigid tissue inertia parameters for contemporary wobbling mass simulation models of impacts. The research was presented at the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport (2004) in Ottawa, Canada and was subsequently short-listed for the New Investigator’s Award at the conference.

The influence of foot orthoses on foot mobility magnitude and arch height index in adults with flexible flat feet Sheykhi-Dolagh, Roghaye; Saeedi, Hassan; Farahmand, Behshid; Kamyab, Mojtaba; Kamali, Mohammad; Gholizadeh, Hossein; Derayatifar, Amir; Curran, Sarah (SAGE, 2014-03-06)Background: Flexible flat foot is described as a reduction in the height of the medial longitudinal arch and may occur from abnormal foot pronation. A foot orthosis is thought to modify and control excessive pronation and ...
