The electrophysiologic and mechanical responses of a synergistic muscle group composed of different muscle fiber types were studied with respect to excitation frequency and muscle fatigue in five men. The force and evoked action potentials obtained from surface and intramuscular fine wire electrodes were recorded continuously during stimulated contractions of the gastrocnemius and soleus at 20, 50, and 80 Hz. The stimulus voltage was adjusted so that the force generated by high-frequency tetani… CONTINUE READING
