Unformatted text preview: o the maximum male isometric force is 220 N (isometric activation) o the maximum female isometric force is 110 N My own published data showed that elbow flexion turning force was equal to elbow extension turning force. NICOL (1977) examined joint reaction forces, or the force of muscle pull on the joint. The results showed: • During dressing and eating there was a 300 N compressive joint reaction force • Supporting one’s self while rising from a chair o 1700 N reaction force on the medial aspect of the elbow o 800 N reaction force on the lateral aspect of the elbow • Pulling a table generated 1900 N reaction force in the elbow • These dynamic loads indicate that the elbow can be subjected to 2-3x body weight forces o static loads approach body weight...
