View Full Version : Muscle contraction/relaxation times

05-16-1998, 04:37 PM
I am engaged with an investigation into the contraction time and
relaxation time of an intrinsic muscle of the foot. I would like to
compare the results with those from other human muscles. I have some
data from the soleus which I studied a few years ago (There were sex

There have been observations on the adductor pollicis, which I do not
have to hand and I think McComas at McMaster Canada obtained some data
about the timing of contractions of the tibialis anterior.

Does anyone know of any other human muscles which have been studied in
this way.?

Has anyone has surveyed and compared the various figures which may be
available ?
