..., joint work was calculated by integrating joint power, which was calculated using inverse dynamics. Although this approach is commonly used, it is not without flaws. Joint work is an approximation of muscle–tendon work because it cannot take co-contraction of antagonistic muscles, biarticular muscle work...

... and ankle. Muscle work was derived as the area under the joint power vs time curves and was partitioned into positive, negative and net components. Dependent t -tests were used to compare positive and negative work in level walking and net joint work between ascent and descent gaits on the ramp and stairs...
