Abstract

Pennation angle of gastrocnemius muscle is important for muscle force production. This angle is often measured in laying position (e.g., Zhou et al. 2012 [1]). Many human movement we study occurs in standing position. Can this angle be measured reliably in standing position? The purpose of this investigation is to examine the test-retest reliability of both lateral and medial heads pennation angles of gastrocnemius during standing position.
