OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether using surface electromyography to assess skeletal muscle fatigue during an isometric exercise has the potential to be clinically useful in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). DESIGN Double sample comparative study. SETTING Cardiac rehabilitation service in France. PARTICIPANTS Sixteen men with documented CAD and 9 age-matched healthy men. INTERVENTIONS Assessment of quadriceps skeletal muscle fatigue on an isokinetic apparatus with surface… CONTINUE READING
