Abstract(in English) This paper describes a pendulum test model that is obtained by improving Jikuya′s one for spastic patients.Nonlinearities of musc le viscoelasticity and(d-motoneuron threshold -are introduced.The former is the nonlinearity that is caused by state transitions(sol to, from gel)of actin and myosin,and the latter is one that is caused by threshold lowering with(x-motoneuron firing.Values of inputs and coefficients in the model are determined so that the simulation result is in accord with the experimental one as much as possible.Both results are agree very closely.
