Abstract: Models of the abdominal musculature, which used single slice MRI or CT scans to reconstruct the anatomy, were unable to explain magnitudes of abdominal flexion moment which exceed 100 Nm in living subjects. For example, the muscle areas and corresponding flexor moment arms measured from a transverse scan at L4-L5 predict maximum moments less than 50 Nm. The architecture of rectus abdominis, external and internal obliques, and transverse abdominis was examined from cadaveric specimens, from which the geometric …
