—Stimulation trains using doublets, two closely spaced stimulation pulses, are thought to reduce the rapid fatigue seen in electrically stimulated muscle. The purpose of this study was to determine if doublet trains could elicit more leg lifts than conventional singlet trains when using surface stimulation of human quadriceps muscle. Eighteen subjects had singlet and doublet stimulation trains applied to their quadriceps to produce closed-loop, leg lift trajectory cycles. Trials ran until the… CONTINUE READING
