Contributions of Limb Joints to Energy Absorption during Landing in Cats

Contributions of Limb Joints to Energy Absorption during Landing in Cats SUMMARY: How is it that cats are able to jump down from high places and not hurt themselves? Researchers in this study observed 5 cats, jumping from various heights, for clues as to what sorts of forces and shock absorbers were at work. The… Continue reading Contributions of Limb Joints to Energy Absorption during Landing in Cats
