Figure 2

Representative load-deformation curve of the triceps surae muscle-tendon unit after isokinetic eccentric cyclic loading for 1 hour at 20% strain. All biomechanical parameters were substantially decreased in the study group. For the control and study groups, respectively, peak load was 850.5 and 305.4 N, deformation at peak load was 35.93 and 20.9 mm, the slope of the curve was 31.1 and 20.5 N/mm, total energy absorption was 23764.6 and 3989.5 N-mm, and energy absorption before peak load was 11564.5 and 2194.0 N-mm.
