An analytical model for the determination of muscle forces across the elbow joint during isometric loading conditions has been developed. The model incorporates the muscle length-tension relationship, while considering the muscle architecture. Sensitivity analyses were performed to study the effects of the geometric and architectural factors of the muscles on the distribution of muscle forces.
