# Calculation of fascicle length and pennation angle

This functions calculates fascicle length and pennation angles of a muscles 3d data set.

Description

%% under construction!
Some paths do not seem to work properly. I will correct this in the next few days.

To calculates the length and angles you need the following:
- a set of 3d data of the muscles fascicles
- coordinates of the force axis
- coordinates of the anatomical landmarks from the calcaneus, the fibula and the main direction of the foot

- the coefficients of the polynomials got calculates with coeffvalues.m

code of the functions polynomtestlin, polynomtest22 and polynomtest33:

function [coefftest]=polynomtest33(AWert,CWert)

% %POLYNOMTEST33 Create plot of datasets and fits

% % POLYNOMTEST33(AWERT,CWERT)

% % Creates a plot, similar to the plot in the main curve fitting

% % window, using the data that you provide as input. You can

% % apply this function to the same data you used with cftool

% % or with different data. You may want to edit the function to

% % customize the code and this help message.

% % Number of datasets: 1

% % Number of fits: 1

% % Data from dataset "CWert vs. AWert":

% % X = AWert:

% % Y = CWert:

% end
coefftest=cf_;
% % Plot this fit
% h_ = plot(cf_,'fit',0.95);

% hold off;
% leginfo_ = {'Orientation', 'vertical', 'Location', 'NorthEast'};
% h_ = legend(ax_,legh_,legt_,leginfo_{:}); % create legend
% set(h_,'Interpreter','none');
% xlabel(ax_,''); % remove x label

% ylabel(ax_,'');
% remove y label

Additionally you can calculate the proximal and distal aponeurosis.
