Fatigue effects in muscular control

Clyde F. Martin, Lawrence Schovanec

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A muscular control model is examined in order to determine possible fatigue effects on the monosynaptic reflex. The muscle dynamics and neural spindle receptors are represented in standard fashion as four-element viscoelastic models. A theoretical derivation of the afferent spindle output is given. This afferent information from the muscle-spindle and delay effects are incorporated into the feedback loop. Fatigue effects upon system performance and stability are illustrated by means of numerical simulations.
