Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The exterior movement, the form of muscle movement and the coordination of muscle movement have been studied. However, quantitative analysis of mechanical character of muscular movement would be important. The purpose of this study was to qualitatively examine the length and moment arms of elbow muscles during elbow flexion and extension.
