The triceps surae muscles
is a muscle
of the calf
, giving the latter volume on the rear side. It is made up of the gastrocnemius muscle
, composed of medial and lateral bundles, and the soleus muscle. It extends from the femur to the calcaneus, through the back of the knee
and the tibia. The triceps surae muscle provides a propulsion action that enables us to walk, stabilizes the position of the leg
, and lifts the heel.
