By means of the ultrasonic photography of the cross-section of the acting muscle bundle, together with the measurement of the muscle strength developed by the subject with maximum effort, the strength per unit area of the muscle was calculated in 245 healthy human subjects, including 119 male and 126 female. The result was summarized as the following: 1. The ultrasonic method used in this work was possibly admitted as the best way to calculate the cross-sectional area of the muscle. 2. The arm… CONTINUE READING
