Strength, size and activation of knee extensors followed during 8 weeks of horizontal bed rest and the influence of a countermeasure

Abstract

Changes in the quadriceps femoris muscle with respect to anatomical cross sectional area (CSA), neural activation level and muscle strength were determined in 18 healthy men subjected to 8 weeks of horizontal bed rest (BR) with (n = 9) and without (n = 9) resistive vibration exercise (RVE). CSA of the knee extensor muscle group was measured with magnetic… (More)
