There are suggested ratios but there really is no reason for exactly 1-1 in all cases. ' Anyone with a physics background could hopefully help answer this one. When building a machine, with hydraulics about moveable joint. It's it important that the machine is perfectly balanced, in order to reduce...

The reason I mentioned athletes is because I'm looking for ideal conditions. I found a Flexor Torque x Elbow Join...
