Long-term intensive electrically stimulated cycling by spinal cord-injured people: effect on muscle properties and their relation to power output.

Inactivity and muscular adaptations following spinal cord injury (SCI) result in secondary complications such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, and pressure sores. Functional electrically stimulated (FES) cycling can potentially reduce these complications, but previous studies have provided inconsistent results. We studied the effect of intensive long… CONTINUE READING
