A limited number of studies have investigated the effect of old age on neuromuscular fatigue, yet a variety of protocols have been used to compare the fatigability of old and young humans. These include voluntary isometric and isokinetic contraction protocols at maximal and submaximal intensities, and electrical stimulation protocols of continuous or intermittent stimulation at a variety of stimulation frequencies. The results of these studies are summarized in this review. Although it seems… CONTINUE READING
