Influence of the input muscle parameters to the resulting muscle forces
M. Vejpustková, M. Vilímek, M. Sochor
pages 412 - +6p., full text

Determination of the muscle force that produce particular muscles is extremely difficult, because of the technical problems of definiting muscle parameters. However, orthopeadists, biomechanical engineers and physical therapists need to take muscle forces into consideration, because joint contact forces, as well as muscle forces, need to be estimated in order to understand the joint and bone loading. The magnitude of the muscle force varies with mechanical and physiological characteristics of relevant muscle and with muscle activity. In terms of these facts was proposed the neural network object to determine the muscle force from particular muscles and evaluate the sensitivity to input muscle parameters.
