Study design:Flexion reflex study in motor complete human spinal cord injury (SCI).Objectives:To examine changes in the magnitude of the flexion reflex following functional electrical stimulation (FES) of the rectus femoris (RF) muscle.Setting:Bioengineering Unit, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, UK.Methods:The flexion reflex was evoked by electrical stimulation of the sural nerve, and was recorded in the tibialis anterior (TA) muscle. RF muscle conditioning stimulation was… CONTINUE READING
