Long-term electrical stimulation of muscles in children with Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy.

Abstract

Nine children suffering from progressive muscular dystrophy (7 Duchenne and 2 Becker) were included in a program of low-frequency electrical stimulation (LFES) of the right tibialis anterior (TA) muscle. Muscle strength and muscle fatigue were estimated by measuring torques in the ankle during attempts of maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) in the direction… (More)
