For description of the visco-elastic behavior of soft biological tissues, Fung proposed a visco-elastic model formulated in terms of a relaxation function and corresponding relaxation spectrum. For the corresponding creep function, Fung proposed an expression which needs correction to obtain a consistent formulation. This creep function and the corresponding creep spectrum are derived in this note.
