Prediction of Muscle Force Generation using Ultrasound Imaging and Computational Simulations

The objective of this study is to develop and validate a method to predict force production of individual muscles from ultrasound measurements of muscle stiffness, size, and structure. We will place acupuncture needles to the muscles and applied a small amount of current to induce contraction. Force and ultrasound measurements will be performed during muscle contraction. This process will be done in three muscles, one in the arm and two in the leg.
