Lookup tables for the batch runs

The files for the batches have such informative names as Batch19_1.bin.gz, Batch19_2.bin.gz, etc. The lookup tables provided below will allow you to find out which muscle activations correspond to which values. The files are in comma delimited (CSV) format, which you can open with any spreadsheet program.

For instance, if you wanted to see what happens when you contract transversus and verticalis simultaneously at full strength, you would open “Batch19 Lookup.csv” and look down the “TR” and “VR” columns (see other abbreviations here) to find where both values are 0.35 MPa, and then you would see that the combination is given in file 12 (Batch19_12.bin.gz).
