The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a 120-day 5° head-down tilt (HDT) bed-rest on the mechanical properties of the human triceps surae muscle in healthy young women subjects. Measurements included examination of the properties of maximal voluntary contractions (MVC), twitch contractions (P t) and tetanic contractions (P o). The difference… CONTINUE READING
