Stability of Ankle Motion in Eversion and Inversion Motion

Health icon, disabled. A red heart with a cardiac rhythm running through it.

This research project investigates the stability of the ankle in inversion and eversion using variable negative damping coefficients: -0.3, 0, 0.3. The angle of motion is tested by making a comparison between 5 and 7 degrees angles of motion. Currently the researcher is focusing on creating graphs and build a reasoning interpretation of the experimental results. The outcome of this research is to identify the right damping coefficient and the angle of motion while collecting data from about 10 test subjects.
