In relation to the above I recently became aware of a paper produced by a Mr David Sleboda titled "Incompressible fluid plays a mechanical role in the development of passive muscle tension " (see below ). The paper was published on the 25 January 2017 and involves a muscle model which includes a water filled condom .

The paper is about passive tension but the authors state at the end of their discussion _

" The study of how incompressible fluid influences other aspects of muscle physiology, especially those associated with active contraction, has great potential to increase our understanding of the tissue, and warrants further interest and research within the field of muscle mechanics."
