Abstract

The objective is to estimate the vastus medialis (VM) muscle force from multifrequency magnetic resonance elastography (MMRE) tests and two different rheological models (Voigt and springpot). Healthy participants (N = 13) underwent multifrequency (70, 90 and 110 Hz) magnetic resonance elastography MMRE tests. Thus, in vivo experimental elastic (μ) properties of the VM in passive and active (20% MVC) conditions were characterized. Moreover, the muscle viscosity (η) was determined with Voigt and springpot rheological models, in both muscle states. Subsequently, the VM muscle forces were calculated with a generic musculoskeletal model (OpenSIM) where the active and passive shear moduli (μ) were implemented. The viscosity measured with the two rheological models increased when the muscle is contracted. During the stance and the swing phases, the VM tensile forces decrease and the VM force was lower with the springpot model. It can be noted that during the swing phase, the muscle forces estimated from springpot model showed a higher standard deviation compared to the Voigt model. This last result may indicate a strong sensitivity of the muscle force to the change of active and passive contractile components in the swing phase of gait. This study provides for the first time an estimation of the muscle tensile forces for lower limb, during human motion, from in vivo experimental muscle mechanical properties. The assessment of individualized muscle forces during motion is valuable for finite element models, increasing the patient specific parameters. This novel muscle database will be of use for the clinician to better elucidate the muscle pathophysiology and to better monitor the effects of the muscle disease.
