Plantar flexor series elasticity can be used to dissociate muscle fascicle and muscle tendon behaviour and, therefore, afferent feedback during human walking. We used electromyography (EMG) and high speed ultrasonography concomitantly to monitor muscle activity and muscle fascicle behaviour in nineteen healthy volunteers as they walked across a platform. On random trials, the platform was dropped (8cm, 0.9g acceleration) or held at a small inclination (
