Data from: Inferring muscle functional roles of the ostrich pelvic limb during walking and running using computer optimization

Jeffery W. Rankin, Jonas Rubenson & John R. Hutchinson
Owing to their cursorial background, ostriches (Struthio camelus) walk and run with high metabolic economy, can reach very fast running speeds and quickly execute cutting manoeuvres. These capabilities are believed to be a result of their ability to coordinate muscles to take advantage of specialized passive limb structures. This study aimed to infer the functional roles of ostrich pelvic limb muscles during gait. Existing gait data were combined with a newly developed musculoskeletal model to...
