Abstract. Description of mathematical models developed for simulation of human lower limbs movements is presented. Design of an experimental prototype that simulates planar motion of a mechanical system heel-basin and is intended for the use in motor skills recovery is demonstrated. The features of setting up experiments and processing of the signals obtained with this prototype are considered.
Keywords: movement, pelvis, lower limbs, acceleration, signal processing, differential equation
