Abstract: To examine the region specificity within the rectus femoris (RF) for knee extension and hip flexion force directions, three force components around the ankle were measured during intramuscular electrical stimulation applied to six parts of the RF: a proximal and medial part, a proximal and lateral part, a middle and medial part, a middle and lateral part, a distal and medial part, and a distal and lateral part. As a result, the exerted force directions in all of the subjects were variable in all regions, and the proximal region of the RF was the dominant contributor to the hip flexion moment. In addition, the force in the lateral region of the RF, rather than that in the medial region, denoted the lateral direction. These results suggest that divergent regions of muscle fibers within the RF are responsible for different functions in determining the force direction.
