Table 1 The difference in tensile force levels and corresponding muscle stiffness in vitro and in vivo (N/m).

Descriptive statistics – stiffness for the different tensile force levels (mean±SD)
Experiment I (in vitro)0 N2 N4 N6 N8 N10 N
Experiment II (in vivo)Rest10% of MVC20% of MVC30% of MVC40% of MVC50% of MVC
SD – standard deviation; MVC – maximal voluntary contraction.
