The present study was carried out to investigate the long-latency soleus stretch reflexes M2 (peak latency of approximately 85 ms) and M3 (peak latency of approximately 115 ms) during walking in healthy and spastic multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. An 8 degrees stretch was applied to the ankle extensors of the left leg in 8 healthy subjects during normal walking speed and 9 spastic MS patients and 10 age-matched healthy subjects during slow walking. When present in walking healthy subjects, M2… CONTINUE READING
