BACKGROUND After incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI), patients suffer important sensorimotor impairments, such as abnormal locomotion patterns and spasticity. Complementary to current clinical diagnostic procedures, the analysis of muscle synergies has emerged as a promising tool to study muscle coordination, which plays a major role in the control of multi-limb functional movements. OBJECTIVE Based on recent findings suggesting that walking and cycling share similar synergistic control, the… CONTINUE READING
