  • Articles Regarding Muscle Twitch in the Lower Extremities

    Below your original message you will find citations to a couple of
    articles that deal with muscle twitch and the lower extremities. I hope
    they will prove helpful to you in your research.

    Good afternoon.

    I am interested in attaining some more information regarding muscle twitch
    times for lower limb muscles. Much of the literature I have retrieved is
    specific to the upperlimb or hand, however, some articles draw comparison
    to certain lower limb muscles (Gastroc medial head, soleus, TA). I have
    been unable to find t-times for the following muscles which I require for
    some EMG sofware I'm writing.

    If anyone could point me toward some further literature in my search for
    t-times for following muscles I'd be appreciative.

    Gastrocnemuis lateral head
    Biceps Femoris
    Rectus Femoris
