Data set of Spatial distribution of stiffness between and within muscles in paretic and healthy individuals during prone and standing positions
Data presented the inter- and intramuscular variability of plantar flexors stiffness during prone and standing positions at different muscle lengths in healthy and paretic individuals. Shear wave elastography (SWE) measurements were carried out on two groups: control group and stroke survivor group. Shear Modulus (μ, kPa) within three plantar flexors (the gastrocnemius medialis [GM], gastrocnemius lateralis [GL], and soleus [SOL]) was obtained during two conditions: prone and standing position, at different angles of dorsiflexion (0◦, 10◦, and 20◦). Measurements were also performed in different proximo-distal regions of each muscle.
