Maximal voluntary isometric torque values of the ankle plantar (T im,PF) and dorsal flexors (T im,DF) were assessed in eight healthy adult males at 5° and 15° of dorsal flexion (DF) and at 5°, 15° and 25° of plantar flexion (PF) with the knee at right angles, before (two times), during (three times) and after (three times) 17 days of 6° head-down tilt bedrest (BR). Integrated electromyograms (iEMG) were also recorded from the gastrocnemius medialis and tibialis anterior. T im,PF and the iEMG of… CONTINUE READING
