Abstract:Many human movements involve eccentric contraction of muscles. Therefore, it is important that a theoretical model is able to represent the kinetic response of activated muscle during lengthening if it is to be applied to dynamic simulation of such movements. The so-called Hill and Distribution Moment models are two commonly used models of skeletal muscle. The Hill model is a phenomenological model based on experimental observations; the Distribution Moment model is based on the cross-bridge theory of muscle c…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
