Subject : stiffness of tendon

I am using a muscle model consisting of a contractile element and
elastic element in series to model the force produced at the shoulder
joint to produce flexion and extension of the arm relative to the body

I have calculated muscle parameters for the contractile element but I have
been unable to find / calculate values for the stiffness of the series
elastic element.

Does anybody know where I could obtain values for the
stiffness of tendon in muscles at the shoulder joint?

I will post a summary of results

Thankyou in advance
