Abstract

A robotic/UFS (universal force-moment sensor) testing system was applied to the measurement of sagittal plane flexibility and other structural properties of human lumbar functional spinal units (FSUs). The results confirm the ability of the system to determine the structural properties of a linear physical model as well as highly nonlinear lumbar FSU specimens.
