We used three approaches to determine the stimulation patterns that maximize the isometric force-time integral per impulse (FTIpP) available from tibialis anterior muscles of the rabbit. Initially the interval between two pulses was fixed at the value that gave the maximum force-time integral, and successive pulses were added at intervals that maximized the FTIpP. We checked this iterative approach by a second method, in which a computer-generated protocol was used to deliver randomized bursts… CONTINUE READING
