Chronic low frequency stimulation (10 Hz, 8 h · day−1) was used in this study to prevent the changes in the contractile and elastic properties of rat soleus muscles induced by 3 weeks of hindlimb suspension (HS). Results showed that electrostimulation was able to counteract in part the decrease in soleus muscle mass and tension output induced by unweighting. On the other hand, the increases in maximal shortening velocity and twitch speed following HS were not prevented by stimulation… CONTINUE READING
