value would indicate that a contraction lasting less than 0.1 s demands a higher muscle activation to provide the power demands during the contraction than the mechanical work. To date, 0.1 s is merely a semi-empirical estimate, taken as invariant; at some level, this assumption must be untrue, potentially with revealing implications. ‘Demand’ It is assumed that the demand for activation for a given set of gait parameters can be modeled by calculating the associated work and power requirements alone. By making the assumption that ‘gearing’ selected for a
