The catchlike property of skeletal muscle is the force augmentation produced by the inclusion of an initial, brief, high-frequency burst of two to four pulses at the start of a subtetanic low-frequency stimulation train. Catchlike-inducing trains take advantage of the catchlike property of skeletal muscle and augment muscle performance compared with constant-frequency trains, especially in the fatigued state. Literature spanning more than 30 years has provided comprehensive information about… CONTINUE READING
