Abstract:

This report presents a survey of the back musculature of four primates and is part of a biomechanical study of the spinal system with emphasis on soft tissues. A comparative study is made of specimens from rhesus, baboon, chimpanzee and human. Information on the similarities and differences of the major muscles supporting the spinal system will assist interspecies scaling and model development for use in evaluating injuries to aircrewmen.
