Flexible rider harness
I spent a couple of hour with Dave Scurti at Pacific Medical Prosthetics and Orthotics last night and we fashioned the harnesses for the flexible rider setup.
Dave Scurti has been super helpful with the design and fabrication of the flexible rider harness. I am attempting to measure three upper body motions of the bicycle rider: 1) hip roll relative to the bicycle frame, 2) rider lean relative to the hips and 3) torso twist relative to the hips. The only other rider motion that I am going to permit is the movement of the arms to control the steering. The following videos show what I'm trying to capture:
