  • summary of hand's muscle fiber composition

    Dear netters,

    Some weeks ago I posted a message asking for information about
    fiber composition of intrinsic and extrinsic of the human hand. I would
    like to thank all you who have replied me

    This is the literature:

    Long, C. Intrinsic-Extrinsic Muscle Control of the Fingers.
    The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (50-A);5: 973-984, July 1968,.

    Biomechanics book by Winters. Look in the appendix.

    Johnson, M.A., Polgar, J., Weightman, D., and Appleton, D. (1973) Data on
    the distribution of fibre types in thirty-six human muscles: An autopsy
    study. J. Neurological Sciences 18: 111-129.

    first dorsal interosseous in the dominant and non-dominant hand".Eur. J.
