... properties. To the best of our knowledge, there is currently no musculoskeletal model of a small primate that explains the mechanical output during jumping from the properties of muscle fibres and the way they are embedded in the musculoskeletal system.

... consistent among and between animals. Muscles that recover a large amount of energy from storage in tendons may show little change in muscle work with increases in running or hopping speed. For example, the LG and plantaris of wallabies exhibit only a slight increase in positive work with an increase...

...±0.20 J kg -1 for the five highest accelerations(4.86±0.27 m s -2 ). Ankle work was –0.21±0.11 J kg -1 for the lowest accelerations and 0.71±0.28 J kg -1 for the highest. The high work output at the ankle is consistent with the idea that elastic mechanisms function to increase muscle work during...
