Muscles contain a collection of motor units that can have different mechanical properties. It should be expected that the mechanical output from a muscle partly depends on the particular motor units that are activated for a given task. However, muscle models used for biomechanical simulations typically assume that a whole muscle can be represented by a scaled-up muscle fibre. Some models allow the intrinsic properties of the muscle to adapt to the activation levels, but even these may missdoi:10.1016/j.piutam.2011.04.028 fatcat:kticwxhitrdshcusjw4bolphh4
