Resting muscle length affects both maximum force production and force maintenance. The strength and force maintenance characteristics of the genioglossus as a function of resting muscle length have not been described. We hypothesized that genioglossus optimum length (L(o)) could be defined in vivo and that the ability of the genioglossus to sustain a given workload would decrease as resting length deviated from L(o). To test this, 11 normal men repeated maximal isometric genioglossus… CONTINUE READING
