Independent crank cycling with increasing load causes a more constant contraction of the biarticular muscles, rectus femoris
and biceps femoris, compared to normal crank cycling.
There were significant increases in T2 signal intensity post-intervention for the gluteus maximus, and throughout the muscle portion (proximal, medial, and distal) of the vastus lateralis and rectus femoris
Another compensation mechanism is the alteration in movement patterns, for example, stooping less and squatting more during a lift, which would increase the rectus femoris

This more than may be due to an avulsion females injury to the AIIS due to excessive muscular activity of the rectus femoris
during repetitive knee flexion and hip extension.
Electrodes were attached to the muscle belly of the quadriceps (a), and rectus femoris
simulation (b) was performed.
Aizawa reported that the medial cutaneous nerve branches and vastus medialis, vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis, and rectus femoris
nerves were arranged medially to laterally, respectively.
KT was applied to vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, and rectus femoris
muscles in the KT group.
1) The rectus femoris
muscle is the most commonly injured muscle within the quadriceps muscle group because it extends between two joints (hip and knee) and is most vulnerable during kicking games such as soccer.
The activation characteristic of Rectus femoris
[Rec femoris] muscle is 35, 36 and 39 and in right leg is 38, 12 and 8 in amplitude for all three cases respectively.
Anterolateral thigh flap tunneled beneath the rectus femoris
The rectus femoris
originates at the front of the ilium, which is part of the pelvis.
