The strength factor in digital human modeling and simulation: a case for a new framework.

It is not well understood whether strength could ever influence performance in which only sub-maximal, moderate exertions are needed although strength may be indicative of the movement performance at or near the maximal level. In this paper, we present some evidence from two studies suggesting the strength effects on performance strategies in volitional physical tasks, and based on the evidence, a new framework was proposed for human movement modeling and simulation that incorporates the strength factor.
