OBJECTIVE To study the extent to which atrophy of muscle and progressive weakening of the long bones after spinal cord injury (SCI) can be reversed by functional electrical stimulation (FES) and resistance training. DESIGN A within-subject, contralateral limb, and matching design. SETTING Research laboratories in university settings. PARTICIPANTS Fourteen patients with SCI (C5 to T5) and 14 control subjects volunteered for this study. INTERVENTIONS The left quadriceps were stimulated to… CONTINUE READING
