we are wondering what would be the best way to calculate the total force of e.g. the soleus muscle. In our model the soleus consist of 3 medial and 3 lateral parts.
For muscle activation I understand that it would be best to calculate the envelope. However, for muscle force should we also calculate the envelope over lets say the 3 lateral parts to get the muscle force of the lateral soleus or should we sum those up? If we sum all up, values appear high...
