In Vivo mechanical properties of bulk tissue have not been yet investigated sufficiently. One of the major problems the researchers confront is the lack of agreement for the constitutive models and standardized methodology for experimental studies (1). Despite the fact that the tissue properties are non-linear, many modeling studies preferred to adopt linear isotropic models. The object of this study was to obtain bulk modulus of the upper arm under relax and controlled contraction that was 25% of the maximum voluntary contraction (MVC).
