Nevertheless, even with the variation of these parameters, the THOR computational model responses are still significantly different from the PMHS responses, in a similar fashion as in the baseline simulation conditions: The dummy and PMHS having opposite kinematic motion (PMHS straightened out and leaned rearward, dummy leaned forward) for the kinematic targets above T10; the PMHS having more outboard displacement (lateral excursion) and outboard rotation (lateral bending) at the upper thorax and head than the THOR dummy, due to much more compliance in its spine than the dummy.
Further EMG or individual muscle testing responsible for lateral excursion is required to understand the differences.
The most common direction of wheelchair excursion was a combination of fore/aft and lateral excursions, followed by fore/aft excursion only, lateral excursion only, and other excursion types.
