Abstract

A finite element muscle model to study the principles of intermuscular myofascial force transmission is developed. The results obtained explain force differences at the distal and proximal tendons of muscles that have mechanical interaction. This is in agreement with experimental findings in other recent studies. The strain distributions found along the fiber direction indicate intermuscular myofascial force transmission. A consequence is that active force generated within one muscle may be exerted at the tendon of another muscle.
