Abnormal kinematic and kinetic patterns are associated with disability following stroke. The estimation of internal forces and moments during movements is important for developing better rehabilitation regimens for this population. In this study, we used an EMG-driven model to estimate muscle forces and joint moments for stroke patients, and analyzed the kinetics of these patients. Although such models have been used in healthy people, this is the first study to model post-stroke patients.
