This study assessed the potential application and the effectiveness of functional magnetic stimulation (FMS) for preventing skeletal muscle atrophy in adult rats. FMS using magnetic stimulator was performed to rat soleus muscle by placing a round magnetic coil on the back of 3rd-5th lumbar vertebral level at 20 Hz frequency for 60 min/day up to 10 days.
