A mathematical model of skeletal muscle activation during small or isometric movements is discussed with the following attributes. A direct relationship between the stimulus rate and the active state is established. A piecewise linear relation between the length of the contractile element and the isometric force is considered. Hill's characteristic equation is maintained for determining the actual output force during different shortening velocities. A physical threshold model is proposed for… CONTINUE READING
