The proximal landmark of the skin incision was the lateral epicondyle and extended distally toward Lister's tubercle (Fig.
In addition, data which were from segments more than 4 cm distal to the midpoint of the line between the medial epicondyle of humerus and the apex of olecranon were found to be dispersed in the scatter diagrams, suggesting instability and inaccuracy [Figure 1] and [Figure 2].
Thigh length was determined as the distance between the great trochanter and the lateral epicondyle of the femur (23).
The middle point of the line on the ulnar groove between the olecranon and medial epicondyle was taken as the reference point.

The surface was metal plated, stimulating electrodes were placed at 5 cm below the medial epicondyle and at 5 cm above the medial epicondyle and the recording electrodes were placed over the abductor digiti minimi (ADM) muscle on the ulnar side of the hand i.
