Figure 6

TD-SCP comparisons for foot plate angle, as well as medial gastrocnemius relative length. A. Foot plate angle with the horizontally positioned tibia as function of externally exerted moment. Note the converging SCP and TD values towards peak plantar flexion and increasing differences toward dorsal flexion. B. GM relative length ( m+t - (tib) ), as estimate of talocrural joint angle, is plotted as function of externally exerted moment. Note that TD-SCP differences are less dependent on exerted moment than in (A.) Mean values + SEM are plotted. In both panels the SCP/TD ratio of slopes of the lines connecting data points are shown.
