Hi everyone,

As promised, I am finally posting the responses to my request for
population joint strength data. Sorry for the delay; I was trying to
locate the specific article written by Williams and Stutzman (listed
below) but failed to do so. The original request and suggested
articles/books follow.

Original request:

I am looking for static joint moment strength data to compare with
calculated values from a static biomechanical model used to assess
industrial tasks.

I need gender- and relative joint angle- specific maximum flexor and
extensor moment values for the elbow, shoulder, lumbar, hip, knee and
ankle joints. Either age-specifc or data representing the 20-65 yr old
working population would be appreciated.

Suggested articles/books:

1. Inman, V.T., Ralston, H.J. and Todd, F. (1981) Human Walking.

2. An article by Williams and Stutzman - Variation in strength through
joint range of motion in Physical Therapy about 1954 - Unfortunately, I
was unable to locate this article with this limited information so don't
have a complete reference.

3. Knapik, J.J., Wright, J.E., Mawdsley, R.H. and Braum, J. (1983)
Isometric, isotonic, and isokinetic torque variations in four muscle
groups throught a range of joint motion. The Journal of American
Physical Therapy Association, 63, 9338-947.

4. Gabriel, D.A., Basford, J. and An, K.N. (1997) Effects of the
reversal of antagonists upon isometric elbow extension strength and
endurance. Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 78,
1191-1195.

Thanks to all those who responded, Amber.
