The mean values of *A* and *B* (see equation 2 and text for definitions) for L1L2 to L5L6, inclusively, are shown (±S.E.M.). These mean values were used to construct a mean bending equation for macaque lumber—lumber (L-L) intervertebral joints in flexion.

The model parameters are also shown for the *M. fascicularis*lumbosacral joint in flexion (L6S) for comparison.
