The aim of this project was to find a neat way to visualize and summarize muscle force results from musculoskeletal simulations.
The Muscle Force Profile (MFP) and Muscle Profile Score (MPS), similar to the Gait Profile Score (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19632117) analyze and summarize pathological muscle force deviations to typically developing muscle functions during gait. The MFP was considered as a tool to analyze individual muscles (e.g. during clinical gait analysis), whereas the advantage of the MPS is to have an overall score for muscle force deviations, which is useful for statistical analysis.
We will upload the MATLAB code and reference data within the next three weeks.
