Rectus femoris knee muscle moment arms measured in vivo during dynamic motion with real-time magnetic resonance imaging.

Abstract

Moment arms represent a muscle's ability to generate a moment about a joint for a given muscle force. The goal of this study was to develop a method to measure muscle moment arms in vivo over a large range of motion using real-time magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Rectus femoris muscle-tendon lengths and knee joint angles of healthy subjects (N = 4) were… (More)
