The effects of neuromuscular stimulation on muscle tone at the knee in paraplegia.

Abstract

Resting muscle tone of the leg was measured in terms of thigh muscle stiffness and knee resonant frequency in muscles of spinal cord injured subjects who had been involved in an electrical neuromuscular stimulation training programme of the thigh muscles over at least 2 months. The thigh circumference of these patients was 6.6% larger than before training… (More)
