The purposes of this study were to determine the dependence of human squat jump performance on the compliance of series elastic elements (SEEs) of the triceps surae (consisting of the soleus and gastrocnemius) and to explain this dependence. Vertical squat jumps were simulated using an optimal control model of the human musculo-skeletal system. Maximum jump height was found for several values of triceps surae SEE strain at maximum isometric force (epsilon(0)). When epsilon(0) was increased from… CONTINUE READING
