Understanding the dynamic response of the human arm to external perturbations is critical for understanding the neural and mechanical factors contributing to postural arm stability and for predicting stability during interactions with the external environment. One means of describing arm dynamics is by estimating the dynamic endpoint stiffness (DES). This paper introduces an efficient nonparametric approach for estimating DES, and uses this technique to characterize changes in DES under different endpoint loading conditions.
