Dear Biomech's,

For an application in Functional Electrical Stimulation I have to
measure the isometric contraction torques around the ankle of the rat's
hind limb. To model the biomechanic of the hind limb I need the
following statistical data:

-Location of the ankle joint and
-Points of origin and insertion of important muscles in order to gain
lever arms and lines of action
-Branches and innervated muscles of the sciatic nerve

Since I could not find the appropriate information in the reviewed
literature you are my last hope.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
