... a given muscle force. We found that EMA at the hip and ankle joints, as well as overall hindlimb EMA, significantly declined across ontogeny in S. floridanus , whereas EMA at the knee joint remained unchanged. Ontogenetic decreases in EMA were due to isometric scaling of muscle lever arm lengths alongside...

... as the product of the tendon elastic modulus and cross-sectional area divided by tendon slack length ( Zajac, 1989 ). Tendon elastic modulus was assumed to be 1.2 GPa for all MTUs ( Zajac, 1989 ), and tendon cross-sectional area was assumed to be proportional to the corresponding peak isometric muscle force...
