The human neuromuscular system behaves as an optimal controller and it constantly regulates the properties of the human limbs to optimize effort and performance, while guaranteeing stability. Under a mechanical perspective, the result is the regulation of the human joints’ impedance, defined as the dynamical relationship between an applied angular displacement of the joint and the resulting torque acting about it.
The change of the joint impedance during daily tasks can tell a great deal about the underlying neuromuscular system and it can be used as a model to mimic in prosthetic devices, to render their design more natural-looking and versatile [1].
