Spinal cord injury (SCI) results in muscle atrophy, which contributes to a number of health problems, such as cardiovascular deconditioning, metabolic derangement, and osteoporosis. Electromyostimulation (EMS) holds the promise of ameliorating SCI-related muscle atrophy and, therefore, improving general health. To date, EMS training of long-term SCI subjects has resulted in some muscle hypertrophy but has fallen short of normalizing muscle mass. The aim of this study was to compare the… CONTINUE READING
