Dr John Cronin: Wearable Resistance: Rotational Inertia, Placement & Orientation

Lila Exogen Rotational Inertia

Mid-thigh (A) and distal thigh (B) loading. Image B has greater rotational inertia than Image A as the same load is further from the hip axis of rotation. 

 

Lila Exogen Rotational Inertia

Loading orientations that cause external and internal rotation of the limbs. This requires activation of the hip’s internal and external rotators respectively, to maintain proper alignment. 

 

Lila Exogen Rotational Inertia

Anterior thigh loading with maximal (A) and reduced (B) rotational inertia. Image A has more of its load further away from the axis of rotation. Consequently, as the tail has less mass than the head of the load, this orientation in Image A has greater rotational inertia.
