Torque about ankle from tibialis anterior after heel strike


 Is there any gait/biomechanics data out there that would give me the muscle moment (aka internal torque) about the ankle generated by the tibialis anterior (TA) when it is eccentrically contracting during loading response?  This phase of gait occurs just after heel strike, where the TA allows the foot to drop in a controlled manner.  Of course, the moment is dependent on several factors, mainly body weight, stature, and walking speed.  So, I'm wondering if there is an equation with independent variables of weight and height giving a typical value for the moment when an adult person is walking at some "average" speed.
