Stretching human muscles with a mechanical device gave rise to multiple peaks in the rectified and averaged electromyogram. In the first dorsal interosseous the latency of the first peak (M1) was 32.4 +/- 2.4 ms (SD) and the latency of the second peak (M2) was 55.1 +/- 11.3 ms, in both cases measured from the time of the stimulus to the take-off point of the peak. Often a third peak (M3) was seen, having a considerably longer latency. The origin of peak M1 was considered to be in the stretch… CONTINUE READING
