Abstract

In muscle force analysis, orientations and moment arms of the muscles about a joint provide essential coefficients in the equilibrium equations. For the determination of these parameters, several experimental techniques, including geometric measurement, tendon-joint displacement measurement and direct load measurement, are available. Advantages and disadvantages associated with each of the techniques are reviewed and compared based on our extensive experience.
