Abstract

As integral components of the musculoskeletal system, the primary function is transmission of muscle forces to the skeletal system. Proper excursion and gliding of the tendon determine the efficiency of this function. Studies of the tendon excursion and gliding based on two simple mechanical concepts have resulted in several significant clinical implications.
