FORCE-LENGTH RELATIONSHIPS OF HUMAN GASTROCNEMIUS AND SOLEUS MUSCLES IN VIVO
Keywords: Ultrasound, Isometric contraction, synergistic muscles
AbstractINTRODUCTION: Synergistic muscle have different architecture, and therefore could have different force-length relationships for the same joint angle changes. Previous studies have failed to reveal the force-length relationships of synergistic muscles. The purpose of this study was to investigate the force-length relationships of the triceps surae muscles for humans in vivo.
