The functional role of biarticular muscles was investigated based on direct force measurement in the cat medial gastrocnemius (MG) and analysis of hindlimb kinematics and kinetics for the stance phase of level, uphill, and downhill walking. Four primary functional roles of biarticular muscles have been proposed in the past. These functional roles have typically been discussed independently of each other, and biarticular muscles have rarely been assigned more than one functional roles for… CONTINUE READING
