Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper proposes a new method to decrease influence of inter-individual differences on knee joint motions obtained in the pendulum test of spastic patients. First, a model for the pendulum test is normalized based on some bold assumptions by relating its parameters to the lower leg length ratio and lower leg weight ratio between the subject and the standard data. Next, the knee joint motions of 20 normal subjects and 19683 virtual spastic patients were analyzed using this model. The parameters were estimated by either the pendulum test or simulation. Differences in the waveforms of the knee joint motions of the subjects with similar spasticity could be remarkably decreased. Finally, the underlying mechanisms for this decreased difference are briefly discussed.
