Mechano-sensitivity of normal and long term denervated soleus muscle of the rat.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Evidence showed that physical forces, as passive stretching or active contraction, may counteract various kinds of skeletal muscle atrophy due, for instance, to muscle immobilization, pathophysiology or denervation. Accordingly, active muscle contraction induced by functional electric stimulation is helpful to reduce the muscle… (More)
