ABSTRACT
We would like to comment on the paper by Dotan et al. (8) entitled "Child-adult differences in muscle activation-a review." Dotan et al.'s review (8) in conjunction with the commentary of O'Brien et al. (20) constitutes an important contribution to the question "who are stronger: children or adults?" based on specific force comparisons between children and adults and not on absolute values. For simplification reasons, we would like to limit the context of this question to single-joint isometric and isokinetic contractions only. Hence, we will not discuss multi-joint dynamic actions.
